Beeskow Castle, which was first mentioned in 1316, can look back on a varied history of construction and use. At that time, it belonged to the Lords of Strehle, the owners of the Beeskow-Storkow dominion, and formed a dense network of moated castles with the other complexes in the region.
Beeskow Castle was gradually transformed into a cultural and educational center starting in 1992. Since then, theater performances, concerts and festivals regularly bring the old walls to life. Those who want to climb high can climb the 30-meter-high keep. Its viewing platform offers an impressive view of the city and its surroundings. But the castle also invites you to pause for a moment. In the castle's café-restaurant and in the picturesque castle courtyard, there are plenty of opportunities to rest, chat and lean back. Beeskow Castle offers an appearance as a listed ensemble, which is essentially characterized by buildings that were constructed between 1250 and 1550.
The regional museum shows exhibitions on historical topics of the Beeskow region. In the exhibition center, visitors can see changing presentations of contemporary art as well as art from the times of the GDR. A new attraction is the Beeskow Music Museum, a museum of mechanical musical instruments. Regular guided tours take place here on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays.
Events in the castle courtyard and in the concert hall, such as the Opera Oder-Spree offer much worth seeing and hearing and find their audience far beyond the region.
