The Castle Shop

If you wish to take home a memento of your visit to Schloss Drachenburg or if you are looking for attractive and reasonably priced presents for your loved ones, you'll be sure to find something in the Castle Shop with its large selection of souvenirs, literature and home accessories. It is situated in the Vorburg.

Our souvenir articles offer you the chance to take a small piece of castle atmosphere back home with you. If you appreciate classically elegant porcelain, for example, you can choose between Reutter Porcelain cups, bells, thimbles and pocket watches for both sexes. Or, from the Königlich Tettau Manufactory, you will discover Christmas tree balls or a Drachenfels lithophane. Come rain or shine, the original Drachenfels umbrella always makes a good impression, while coffee, tea and cocoa taste so much better if served in a colour-design castle cup! Fabric goods and bags with Schloss Drachenburg motifs from the German manufactories “Frohstoff” and FLIO-Design show modern interpretation of souvenir articles.

We also offer a fine-tasting souvenirs by way of the Schloss Drachenburg edition of Mönchhof wines from Moselle: a dry Riesling white wine or a sparkling Riesling wine. Plus, you will also find a wide range of attractive picture postcards. As for literature, you can browse our own publications about Schloss Drachenburg as well other picture books and catalogues dealing with Rhine romanticism, historicism and the Gründerzeit (the Wilhelmine Era). In addition, there is a range of books on sale from the Foundation for the History of Nature Conservation which is represented in the Vorburg by a permanent exhibition.

Our stylish home accessories – such as candles, porcelain-ware, vases, silver objects and stationery products – enable you to lend your home a small piece of castle ambience. And our range of seasonal decorations is bound to tempt you to rummage awhile. When it comes to younger dragon hunters, we have some fascinating children's literature – from PIXI volumes on the one hand to books about knights, the Niebelungs and princesses on the other. Stuffed dragons, Nici cuddly toys, cardboard model castles and much much more make for a kids' section second to none. Other highlights include top-quality porcelain with dragon designs from the Barbara Flügel Manufactory and an assortment of fairytale jewellery from the House of Drachenfels Design. Not only that: we also offer environment-friendly products in the shape of stationery and gift items.
