Special Exhibition - Lipstick and Cartridge - Women are Winning the Hunt

The number of women who are practicing hunting is constantly rising today. A sign of the times? A modernization in the world of hunters? The chance to start a dialogue with the non-hunting parts of society in order to find answers and establishing a new position?

The new special exhibition is taking up a current topical issue, challenging clichés and stereotypes. It reveals cultural backgrounds and invites to an exciting tour through a huntresses’ world – with, at the end, a try in the shooting cinema!

An exciting series of related events (in German) deepen our knowledge of specific themes around women who hunt.

The special exhibition is shown until october 14th in the new granary hall accessible from the castle court.

The Hunting Dog - Ally and Friend

It was a brilliant trick of our ancestors – about 20,000 years ago, it occurred to people to tame wolves. In time, people began to make use of the traits of the wolf species. The dog, as a pet, came from the wolf in the wild. And so began the fascinating story of the friendship between people and dogs.

The exhibition "The Hunting Dog – Ally and Friend", explains how this close bonding between people and dogs emerged, which influence humankind has had on the evolution of the dog and how the partnership between dog and humans is lived out in the hunt today.
