Museum of Popular Culture – Waldenbuch Castle

Stark contrasts: a documentation of everyday life within the splendid ambience of the former hunting castle of the dukes of Württemberg. Living quarters, pictures, clothing, advertisements and lots more besides give insights into the culture, lifestyles and mentality of broad sections of the population from the 18th century up to the present day.

2500 m² of exhibition space and outstanding collections with an unparalleled diversity of themes: the Museum of Popular Culture in Waldenbuch Castle is one of the most important museums of everyday life in German-speaking areas. Here you can experience at first hand the living conditions and world views of the past 250 years!

The castle was built between 1562 and 1566 as a hunting lodge for Duke Christoph of Württemberg. The lovely spiral staircase dates from this period. Later, the horseshoe-shaped complex was extended and converted in the style of Baroque.
