    I am planning a trip to northern Germany next year taking in many of the WW2 sites I didnt see when I was stationed over there.

    I could kick myself that I never visited Wewelsburg, as it was only down the road!

    Has anyone visited this castle before and if so are there tours available etc?

    Thanks

    i visited about 3 years ago whilst working on sennelager ranges, the crypt was closed when i went for restoration work,and there was very little about its ww2 history,,i believe there is now an exhibition refering to it wartime past now..even though when i went i didnt see much about ww2 it was well worth the visit lots of information on the history and development of the area and such an imposing castle

    You're welcome Nick, I am sure that you'll enjoy it. Nice photos spotter.

    When the more recent tours were brought in, there was the usual talk of "why...?...what for...?...blah, blah..." but the review that I read from a UK newspaper was quite good and said that there was more to see nowadays.

    Regards,

    Carl

    Did you ever get over to Wewelsburg Nick? We were there recently as part of a study visit to the KZ-Niederhagen site, the museum is certainly one that should go on the list - wonderful collection and superbly presented.

    Regards,

    Good pics all.

    Did you check out the wartime blueprints for making a huge SS complex with the castle as the 'tip of the spear?'

    Very ambitious. Maybe not 'Grosse Halle' ambitious, but still in tune with the magalomania.
