Dankwarderode Castle (Burg Dankwarderode) Department of Medieval Art of the Duke Anton Ulrich Museum
The building is a historically true reconstruction of Henry the Lion's castle. The original Braunschweig Lion (Braunschweiger Burglöwe) is to be found in the permanent collection of Medieval objects on the ground floor. It is also worth seeing the Knights' Hall (Rittersaal) on the top floor, which was restored in 1995.
