Relax and make yourself comfortable: on the virtual video tour, visitors can enjoy a guided tour of a different kind. This one is all about accessibility. Designed for people with disabilities, all ages can experience the fascinating history behind the Lion Town. In the 90-minute virtual tour, visitors are shown the hidden details of Hachenburg’s town centre from the comfort of their seats..
Starting with the origins of “Hagenberg Castle” and its historical development, the digital presentation explores the cultural history of the Old Market Square, Hachenburg Castle and the Lion Town’s ancient monuments. Join us on a guided tour through the digital alleyways, past the Protestant castle church and the former Franciscan monastery, interspersed with details that you might not get on a conventional guided tour. The virtual video tour also has a few surprises in store and no shortage of exciting details either.
Visual elements are enriched by our guides’ lively presentation style. The video covers 800 years of Hachenburg history by transporting a condensed version of our exciting walking tour to the screen in the Vogtshof.
Albertine von Grün, Count Alexander von Hachenburg and Georg Friedrich could certainly never have imagined that their stories would be told in such a modern way.
You’ll never get cold on the virtual guided tour of the town, whatever the weather.
The Vogtshof Hachenburg is a beautiful half-timbered building with a slate roof. It has an eventful history as the former residence of the bailiff: once owned by St. Bartholomew’s Church, it was later used as a post office and in 1976 became the town hall complete with a cosy library. After the town hall relocated to another part of Hachenburg, the upper floors of the Vogtshof were restored to their former glory in 2009. Today, it serves as an event space for celebrations and events in Hachenburg. The Löwensaal in the Vogtshof is fully accessible and can be reached by lift at all times, making it suitable for visitors with wheelchairs or physical impairments.
The virtual guided tour is different to most of our other tours and is both an accessible and fascinating experience for people of all ages. Private bookings can be made on request for groups or club outings.
