Wiepersdorf Castle, the former residence of Bettina and Achim von Arnim, the most important poet couple in the Romanticism period, has a long tradition as a place of intellectual discourse and artistic creation. Work placements in the traditional listed castle for female artists and scientists from Germany and abroad are funded by bursaries. Public events, readings, concerts, colloquia and exhibitions in Wiepersdorf Castle are an invitation to the public to engage in an exciting dialogue about current art, music, literature and humanities issues.

After 1946, Wiepersdorf Castle was used as a workshop and recuperation centre for female authors and artists. Well-known German Democratic Republic artists, including Anna Seghers, Christa Wolf and Arnold Zweig, have all been guests here. The reopening of Wiepersdorf Castle as a centre for artists by the Kulturfonds Foundation in 1992 harked back to its literary tradition. Artists from Germany and abroad lived and worked here, funded by bursaries and scholarships from different scholarship donors, including the Kulturfonds Foundation. The artists’ centre had to be closed in 2004 due to the liquidation of the Kulturfonds Foundation. In 2006, the German Foundation for the Protection of Monuments took on the task of maintaining the castle as an artists’ centre with the support of the state of Brandenburg and the German federal government.

Following the establishment of the Kulturstiftung Schloss Wiepersdorf in 2019 and extensive renovation work, operations were resumed in 2020. Artists and scientists can apply for three-month working residencies.

The palace park around Wiepersdorf Palace is a protected monument, just like the palace itself. With its orangery, the sandstone figures and statues from the Greco-Roman mythological world, and the large vases that the painter and palace owner Achim von Arnim-Bärwalde brought back from his travels in Italy, the park still exudes a cheerful southern flair today. Five dwarf figures set up in a semicircle in front of the studio remain a mystery, however, because their origin and meaning have not been handed down. The park is open year-round from 7 a.m. until nightfall. The opening hours of the café in the Orangery can be found on the website of the Kulturstiftung Schloss Wiepersdorf.

The Bettina and Achim von Arnim Museum is currently being redesigned and is expected to reopen in 2022.
