Fairy-tale tours

Schloss Glücksburg has been enchanted and parts of it are now a fairy-tale castle. We look forward to welcoming little and adult visitors to a magic atmosphere. A large fairy-tale tower will lead you to the world of Grimm’s fairy-tales, so you can vividly experience seven fairy-tales at one stroke: der Frog Prince, Mother Hulda, Cinderella, Snow White, Hansel and Gretel, Little Red Riding Hood and Wishing-Table. Each child can put on a costume, slip into the desired role, and learn to know right from wrong and that all actions do have consequences. In our guided museum education tour the exhibition becomes an extracurricular learning location, individually tailored to the different classes and ages.

  • Also, kindergarten groups and other interested groups (min. 10 persons) are welcome to explore the fairy-tale exhibition in a guided tour

Audioguides for adults and children

Child-oriented and exciting descriptions and explanations – this is how the drake and princess Louise Caroline Elisabeth Feodora guide our small visitors through the castle with the aid of a special children’s audio guide. The children will learn about the castle’s history, the individual rooms are explained, and the children will understand the meaning of the coat of arms. A variety of witty anecdotes and tales from the everyday life of dukes and princesses are the icing on the cake. More than 400 years of history have never been so interesting ever before.
