There is a reception room in French classical style, renaissance libraries, a large entrance hall containing typical romanesque elements and a gothic ballroom, all within a single residence. The top floor houses the large festive hall where numerous balls and receptions were held for guests drawn from the nobility and the world of politics and business.
As luck would have it, the castle remained largely unscathed during the two world wars and now offers an authentic glimpse into the lifestyle of a bygone era. However, the Faber-Castell family has not lived there since the outbreak of war in 1939. During the war, part of the castle was requisitioned by the German armed forces.
