Tel. 0271/404-1316

The protagonist of the tour is Magda (Katja Nix) who worked as a housekeeper at the Upper Castle in 1637 at the time of the Thirty Years’ War.
The bold little maid knows some spicy secrets about her masters which can’t be found in any history book.
Historical figures such as Prince Johann VIII of Nassau, Prince Johann Moritz or
Peter Paul Rubens provide the material for Magda’s gossip factory.
In this manner, the tour blends history with anecdotes to paint an entertaining and
certainly surprising historic picture of the goings-on in the Upper Castle.
