Oberhausen Castle: Exhibition and Farm in Park

Oberhausen Castle is at a walking distance from the gasometer and CentrO shopping center. It was built in 1846 in the classical style. Its complex includes the three-storey main building with two adjoining wings and the so-called "little castle" - one-storey building with an attic. Currently, it houses the Ludwig Galerie - one of the 12 museums of Ludwig founded by the Ludwig couple, famous collectors Peter and Irene Ludwig.

The collector couple believed that none of the permanent exhibition would attract visitors to return to the museum again and again - as opposed to periodically changing exhibitions. Based on this principle, the Ludwig Galerie regularly organizes temporary exhibitions, borrowing exhibits of the world’s largest museums. The castle’s southern wing houses the Municipal History Museum of Oberhausen.

The castle is surrounded by a large park. It is an ideal place for walks and picnics. Visitors with children like to be on a small farm, where you can see both domestic animals (goats, pigs, sheep, donkeys, rabbits, etc.), and deer, lynx, wolves, raccoons, eagles and owls. Visitors are allowed to stroke some small animals. The pot-bellied piggies, also living here, love it! In several places in the park food is sold for the birds to be able to lure them closer as human food is harmful to them. The entrance to the park is free; you only pay for some extra entertainment.
