Wewelsburg Castle, a former castle of the prince-bishops of Paderborn, features a varied and modern permanent exhibition regarding the history of the Prince-Bishopric. The exhibition ranges from early settlements in the Paderborn region via the founding of the bishopric in early medieval times, the time of the reformation, and the Thirty Years’ War all the way to the end of the clerical territorial lordship of the bishops in 1802. Many aspects of cultural history are being illuminated across the centuries, including urban living, agriculture, and rural handicraft or religiousness. Furthermore, there are intriguing insights into the history of Earth as well as the landscape peculiarities of the Paderborn region. Except for two rooms, all areas of the museum are accessible by wheelchair. A comprehensive audio guide offer allows for tours in German, English, and Dutch, in “plain language”, as well as for children.
