Herzog Anton Ulrich Museum information
Lonely Planet review
Braunschweig’s Duke Anton Ulrich (1633–1714) had an eye for miniature porcelain figures – as well as for crockery, furniture and all types of painting, from Chinese to European. The thousands of pieces he assembled in his lifetime are usually found in this building, which was closed for restoration at the time of research. Until restoration is completed (unlikely before 2013), prized works from artists such as Rembrandt, Rubens and Vermeer, as well as porcelain, graphics and sculptures, are housed inside the Knight’s Hall of Burg Dankwarderode.
