In five rooms, the museum illuminates the development of Wiepersdorf Castle as the manor house of the von Arnims up to its current use as a residence for artists and scientists. The focus is on the spirit of Romanticism as well as the period between 1945 and 1989, when the castle primarily housed writers.

Wiepersdorf Castle is a place that has undergone many transformations. It is a place of ambivalences, obstinacy and invention. No one is who they are anymore. Nothing is what it was. Again and again in its history, this place must be more and other than it is. What is not there must be imagined. What is characteristic of the accumulation of objects in Wiepersdorf is the abundance of their missing parts. Thus Wiepersdorf Castle becomes a place that only becomes what it never is through manifold imaginings:

When, for example, Bettina and Achim von Arnim try to master the time of upheaval after 1806, in the greatest conceivable tension between their own will, the demands of a lifestyle befitting their station, financial need and entrepreneurship. When, in the 19th century, her grandson Achim von Arnim-Bärwalde transformed the manor house - in Bettina's and Achim's time a barely maintainable place of status representation - into a palace with a baroque appearance by means of the grand staircase and the French garden. When during the Second World War the Jewish communist Iwan Katz is hidden in the manor house, with whose help the castle can be saved, albeit with losses, through the post-war period. When the GDR runs an artists' house in the baroque interior and the cultural-political claim oscillates between international charisma and seclusion. Or when the next transformation after 1990 again confronts the Künstlerhaus and its staff with existential challenges.

Wiepersdorf Castle is thus a place of constant transcriptions, in which visitors to the castle relate to their fantasies of the Wiepersdorf past.

After extensive renovation and redesign work, the museum reopened on September 4th 2022. It is open free of charge every Sunday from 1 to 5 p.m. during the summer months. Guided tours on request at info@schloss-wiepersdorf.de or 033746 - 69 90
