Jever Castle Museum - a City Symbol

JeverCastle is the city’s claim of fame. It is even depicted in the logo of thelocal Jever beer. In the Middle Ages the fortress guarded the locals from raidsof their neighbors. For a long time it was owned by the Princes ofAnhalt-Zerbst. Great Russian Empress Catherine II is from this ancient dynastyand Jever Castle belonged to her, too. At that time it was a luxurious palacewith expensive coffered ceilings and Baroque stucco reliefs. After Catherine'sgrandson, Alexander I, gave the residence to his relatives the Dukes ofOldenburg in 1818, Jever Castle became even more beautiful. There is an amazinglybeautiful landscape park in the surrounding area.

Jever Castle hasretained its look it had under the Dukes to this day. Now the castle houses a museumand a library. The exhibition includes numerous paintings masterpieces andprecious tapestries from the collection of the former owners. There are halls presentingthe peasant way of life and agriculture, the history of fashion, porcelain andceramics. The modern Jever Castle is a major cultural center. It regularlyhosts city festivals, stage plays, concerts and various lectures. In summer,from May 1 to September 30, the viewing platform on the main castle tower opensfor tourists. It offers wonderful views of Jever’s historic center and greenoutskirts of the city from a height of 67m.
