Eutin Castle is the cultural center and nucleus of the town. The four-winged palace originated from a medieval castle and was expanded over several centuries into a Residence. The castle originally belonged to the Luebeck prince-bishops. Later it became the summer residence of the Dukes of Oldenburg. The castle was regularly occupied until the 20th century and most of the interior has survived to the present-day. The rooms of the former ducal residential castle that are now used as a museum are provided with original furnishings: furniture, paintings and craftwork from the times of the late Baroque, Regence and Classicism. Impressive items are, for instance, large model ships. These were once presents from the Russian Czars who were related to the House of Schleswig-Holstein-Gottorf. The once splendid garden, which resembled that of Versailles, was altered to an English garden at the end of the 18th century.

This restaurant is considered a brewery as the name says Brauhaus Eutin. Since we've had simply soda & mineralwater to our lunch, I have no idea about their beer. But their food was pretty good (beef, Wiener Schnitzel, fries, salad). Portions are almost too big, and the wait was a bit long. Location is right on Eutin's market place and there for really lovely. Service is good, waitresses are very nice. We were lucky with the weather and had our seats outdoors at the market place.
This time I had none of their wonderful ice cream but hot waffles with cream and hot cherries. What I love for the cream is, if it's served with these little, decorative, colorful candy-crums all over, sure, it's pretty artificial yet very good too! This Janny's in Eutin sits right at the town's center, at the historic market place what makes it even more nice - watching the little booths and ppl passing by buying goodies and stuff.
Eutin's Tee Schmiede is located in the town's center/market place, it's a small store on the pedestrian zone. They do some great tea offer as they provide teas - so far I understand - from South Africa, China, Japan, India. Also one can find sweets, very lovely souvenirs, and any thing deco for house and kitchen. They do deliver to any where in the world. Unfortunately their lovely & detailed web page has no English translation. We actually purchased their finest highgrown mountain rooibos tea with cream & cherry flavor. Wonderful stuff. Red bush tea is in fact very mild and always friendly with one's stomac.
As I wrote on the entry page, Eutin is hosting a two days lasting festival every two years. During that weekend, Eutin presents plays, booths, bards of the bygone medieval, knights on horses, ladies and gents of the baroque, wild slavs, and casts of the Garde-Grenadier-Regiment of the Prussian Army, to name a few of the highlights.

Aseries of coincidences connects and reunites the artist of Eutin, the present location of the painting in the United States, and the object of the painting, Eutin’s central square, its marketplace, and the St. Michael’s church. Although there have been many connections between Americans and Eutiners in recent years, especially since the establishment of a sister city relationship between Lawrence, Kansas and Eutin in 1989, the picture of Eutin by a prominent representative of early modern art has gone unnoticed. There is good reason, therefore, to make up for this omission and to reflect upon a legacy that began in Germany with the famous artists of the Blaue Reiter, above all, Wassily Kandinsky and Franz Marc.
Haven't been inside the museum since it unfortunately was closed but thought it's interesting to at least look up their web page.
