Baroque Farm Buildings

The 300 year old barns and now house the Vintage Car Museum, the Art Gallery and various gift shops. The Stable Restaurant and the beer garden are also located here.

The chapel is not open to visitors except for wedding ceremonies. Castle Dennenlohe also boasts an impressive Baroque farm, consisting of an 80 metre long yard with stalls and barns on all four sides. It has always been the financial mainstay of the castle and its residents. Besides forestry, arable and lake-land farming, there is also a brewery, a sawmill and a weaving mill. Up until 1823 courts were held in the administrators office. The gallows were just 500 metres west from the farm.

In 1965 the farming facilities were leased out. At the end of 2003 Baron Süsskind decided to restore the Baroque farm buildings totally, based on the fact that the castle gardens and special events had become such popular tourist attractions. The Baroque farm became a sightseeing attraction itself and the old farm buildings were put to new use. In the historical riding hall horses were trained for the cavalry - today it serves as an Art Gallery and Concert Hall. The stables now function as a restaurant and cafe with a beer garden at the front, shaded by chestnut and apple trees.
