Fire breaks out in restaurant at Burgdorf Castle

16. FEB. 2024

A fire broke out on 15 February at Burgdorf Castle and part of the kitchen was destroyed. Due to the high level of smoke, the restaurant and reception are currently unavailable.

As the safety of its guests is of paramount importance to the Foundation and its operators, Burgdorf Castle will not be able to open as planned on 17 February after the company holidays. The priority is to check and reinstate all security systems and building services. According to current estimates, this will take at least one week. This means that the doors to Burgdorf Castle will not open again until 24 February at the earliest. Further information will follow.
