Forensics were able to recover a lost notebook. In it, the thief has neatly recorded his or her ideas on what else to steal. The reception desk will be happy to share with you the clues that have been found so far, and to get you started, the inspector will show you a video with tips for your search in the museum.

On the detective tour you will pass by numerous exhibit highlights and learn interesting background information about the objects. In some of the places you need to be very observant, in others you need patience to find the right solution. After all, you’ll be learning lots about the ancestors of the suspects and the history of the castle.

If your clues lead to discovering the culprit, the inspector will present you with a Master Detective award as a thank you. The Burgdorf Castle Museum is counting on the help of as many sleuths as possible!

The new detective tour is suitable for museum visitors with children aged nine and up. For families with younger children, the family tour with the castle ghost Burdtli and his friends in the museum is an excellent choice. There are also free tour flyers available at the reception for anyone interested in the Middle Ages or globetrotting
