Guided Tours

On a 90-minute tour through the book castle, visitors will get to know the castle and the library and learn more about the history of Blutenburg Castle as well as the beginnings, the mission and the tasks of the International Youth Library.

The tour takes visitors through the reading room, the hallway gallery, all permanent exhibitions, and the medieval chapel. For small children and students, the tour ends in the children's library and offers them time to browse the books displayed.

If you would like your guide to focus on a particular topic during the tour, please let us know in advance.
