Colombi Castle

Colombi Castle


From widow's residence to archaeological museum

The Colombischlössle in Freiburg’s city centre is a manor house that Countess Maria Antonia Gertrudis von Zea Bermudez y Colombi had built as a widow’s residence after the death of her husband in 1861. The design of the castle is based on the Gothic Tudor style of the English Middle Ages. After the death of the owner, the Colombischlössle housed the municipal art museum from 1909 to 1923 and then part of the city administration. Since 1983, it has been home to the Archaeological Museum of the City of Freiburg. The picturesque castle is surrounded by a park-like garden with exotic plants, trees, fountains and sculptures, inviting visitors to stroll and linger.
