A visit to Augustusburg can easily fill most of a day. The palace complex contains several museums and other attractions. I am describing them in separate tips, so this here is an overview of what there is to do with links to the individual tips:

# A guided tour of the palace takes you into the historical rooms of Lindenhaus, into the renaissance palace chapel and into the well house. These three cannot be visited individually.

# Carriage museum in the former stables

# Motorbike museum in Küchenhaus

# The dungeons in the cellar contain an exhibition about torture and punishment

# In the Hasenhaus you can see the Venus hall, the Hunting Museum and the Hall of the Hares with its funny frescoes.

# There is a viewpoint on the rooftop, but we did not climb up there because there was no view to be enjoyed on that rainy day.

You can buy separate tickets for each museum but if you plan to visit several, best thing to do is buy the Saver Ticket which includes them all, unless you hold an ErzgebirgsCard which is valid here.
Please check the website for up-to-date information about entrance fees and opening hours.
