We are making big changes!Dürnitz Hall. A new cultural lobby for the Old Castle

The State Museum team is continuously working to meet the needs of a modern museum. A museum should be more than just an exhibition space. In order to continue to satisfy the high demands of a cultural centre, the museum foyer, Dürnitz Hall, is being redesigned. In the Middle Ages, this 1,000 m² hall was already the heart of the Old Castle; it served as a heated community meeting place and dining hall for occasions when the entire court was assembled. Today we want to continue this tradition and develop Dürnitz Hall from a traditional museum foyer to a “third place”.
