Muthaus Burg Hardeg


From its majestic position on higher ground, the Burg Hardeg seems to look down into the valley with time-honoured dignity. The castle was built in the 12th century and served the Duke of the Welfs as a seat of government. It is open to visitors and the ideal point of departure for fascinating walks.

The rustic historical ambience makes this a highly popular venue and hence the ‘Muthaus’, which forms part of the complex of buildings, has featured in the programme of the International Handel Festival continuously since 2006.
