Guided Tours of the Museum

Group Tours (GB): All year around with advance reservation.

Experience Corvey’s history, exciting connections and insightful backgrounds with an individual guided tour. Information about Corvey Abbey’s foundation in the middle ages, its great heyday, its reconstruction as a prince bishop’s residence in the baroque, the upheavals of secularisation and its redesigning in the Biedermeier style are told in the Corvey Chronicle. Even today, the castle is still the ducal family’s residence.

The princely library and its well-known librarian, Hoffmann von Fallersleben, is today still one of the greatest private libraries in Germany. Hoffmann von Fallersleben is buried next to his wife in the Corvey cemetery.

Group Tours around Corvey and its Museum

Corvey offers a rich artistic and cultural spectrum; from its foundation in the Carolingian period and its heyday in the middle ages, via its downfall in the early modern era and its reconstruction as an abbot’s residence in the baroque, as well as the upheavals of secularisation and its redesigning in the Biedermeier style. This checkered history determines the themes of our guided tours which are both informative and entertaining.

Available all-year-round when booked in advance. Please phone + 49 (0)5271 694010 to book.
