The concept of the museum is currently being revised by the Cultural Foundation Schloss Wiepersdorf. In addition to the history and mindset of the Romantic period, it will also shed light on the period between 1947 and 1989, during which numerous writers worked and lived at Schloss Wiepersdorf.

With the aid of original documents, paintings and today’s interior decoration, visitors have gained insight into the life of the von Arnim family and the poet-couple’s social circle and friends, which included Friedrich Carl von Savigny, Clemens Brentano and the Brothers Grimm, among others. The exhibition also includes the atelier and paintings of the historical painter Achim von Arnim-Bärwalde, a grandson of the poet couple, who had fashioned today’s manor house castle garden. The former Bettina and Achim von Arnim Museum in Schloss Wiepersdorf was founded in 1992.
