The exciting combination of a late medieval fortified tower and a Renaissance palace already gives an idea of the eventful history of this house. Inside, modern technology allows the old royal seat of the margraviate of Lower Lusatia to revive before the eyes of the visitors and with exhibits that can be touched from the Bronze Age to the Modern Era, they can "grasp" the past up close. In this museum you are welcome to see, hear and participate. Here the ancestors speak, chorales sound and the treasures lie at your feet. Part of the exhibition is also the historical coat of arms hall from 1915 in the Schlossturm with its monumental wall painting by August Oetken as well as 115 coats of arms of towns, aristocratic lordships or knights' estates, which reflect the political situation of Lower Lusatia at the beginning of the 20th century. The splendid wedding room and the fresh regional cuisine of the castle restaurant round off the offer of this impressive house. The exhibition is handicapped accessible and also very recommendable with children.

The Lübben City and Regional Museum with its exhibition rooms is dedicated in particular to the history of the city of Lübben, the former old district of Lübben and Lower Lusatia, the capital of which was Lübben from the 16th century to 1815. With up to six special annual exhibitions, a wide variety of contemporary or cultural-historical issues are explored in depth. The Paul Gerhardt installation and an interactive city model illustrating the old residence of the margraviate of Lower Lusatia can also be admired. Further highlights are a medieval treasure find as well as hoards and graves of the Iron and Bronze Ages. Particularly noteworthy are the rich finds of the Lusatian culture, described and researched by the physician and prehistorian Rudolf Virchow.

The Lübben Castle was built in the late Renaissance style at the end of the 17th century on behalf of Christian I, the Duke of Saxony-Merseburg, as a successor to a sovereign castle complex that had existed here since the 14th century. Today it consists of the late medieval fortified and residential tower (2nd half of the 14th century) with 2.5 m thick walls, the former Oberamtshaus (castle) and the "Jägerhaus" (stables). The castle tower is used for events and weddings. The Marstall serves as a municipal library.
