History:

The chapel, one of the earliest Protestant churches in Schleswig-Holstein, was redecorated in 1717 in the baroque style under Duke Phillip Ernst (1673-1729). The pulpit altar (typical of Northern Germany) and the baptismal font are works of the woodcarver Claus Gabriel. The organ, dated 1847, was installed by the renowned firm of Marcussen of Apenrade.

During restorations in 1973 the original renaissance frescoes were revealed. Up to 1965 the chapel served as the official parish church. Nowadays it is still used for church services, weddings, baptisms, prayers and church music. Adjacent to the west wall of the chapel is the vault, where in 1811 a member of the family was entombed for the last time.

Monastery Documentation

The draining of the artificial lake in 1962, 1969 and 2005 revealed the foundations of the Rüde monastery. Founded in 1209 by Cistercian monks, the derelict monastery was pulled down in 1583 to make way for the construction of the castle. Tools, slag from a smelting furnace, wooden water pipes and a stone from the floor heating (‘Hypokausten’ stone) testify to the high technical standard of the monastery. These exhibits can be found in the room next to the chapel.

The festive hall received its name from the original red linen wall coverings. The ornamentation of the barrel-vaulted ceiling as well as the flooring date back to the time of the edification and are considered the earliest example of stucco work in Schleswig-Holstein.

The coat-of-arms of the Dukes of Schleswig-Holstein-Sonderburg-Glücksburg is located above the open fireplace.

In 1861 it was used as a banqueting hall and was decorated with leather wall coverings. The table can be extended to seat about 70 people. The displayed Goblin collection which was restored in 1984-85 is one of the most important in Northern Europe. These picture tapestries with imaginary scenes of peasant life taken from the drafts of the Flemish painter David Teniers the Younger were crafted about 1740 in the Brussels workshop of van der Borght and van der Hecke.
