Exhibitions of our partner organisations

Int. Förderverein Katharina II.

  The life of Princess Sophie Auguste Friederike

The "International association Catherine the second" is dedicating its since 2015 newly designed exhibition of the future Russian Tsarina, whose childhood rooms once occupied the uppermost floor of the main wing of the castle. Copies of portraits, primarily from Russian museums, are being shown. Apart from this, there are also varying special exhibitions to be seen.

Int. Fasch-Gesellschaft e. V.

  Court componist Johann Friedrich Fasch

The court composer Johann Friedrich Fasch was active from 1722 to 1758 in the service of the princely house of Zerbst. The exhibition in two rooms is dedicated to Fasch's life and extensive activities and also to that of his son Carl Friedrich Christian. The presentation was designed by the International Fasch Society, whose members continue to popularise his musical heritage.

Zerbster Heimatverein e. V.

  Old-Zerbst - Lost buildings and streetways

The Zerbst Homeland Union e. V. is present as a third partner association on the second floor of the castle. In three exhibition halls, models of the houses of the historic market, of the five city gates and of the former Wilhelmine barracks can be seen. Several roll-ups examine in more detail the subject of the historic city which was largely lost in 1945.


The opening times of the exhibitions in the castle are to be found in the "Tours" section.
