Donati Castle Reinbek Foundation

"... it started with the sound of the tower clock when it struck the half and full hours.
Otherwise, the castle was unsightly and hidden behind trees. That changed for me and my now late wife Katja when the building sins of the 19th century were removed at the beginning of the restoration in the 1970s:
Suddenly we caught sight of the building as the Renaissance masters had originally designed it.
The transformation was fascinating! When the many wonderful cultural events later filled the castle with life, well, that was it ...
... a great love began! "(Bernhard Donati †)

The Foundation's Goals - to further Art and Culture

  • Promotion of high-quality cultural events such as exhibitions, concerts, readings
  • Promotion of young artists with a promised professional future and their activities in the castle
  • Help with the acquisition of works of art (furniture, carpets, tapestries, pictures, ceramics, porcelain, musical instruments), which serve to complement and complete the state-of-the-art equipment of the castle
  • Help with the professional restoration of existing art objects

Donations and endowments secure the future of Reinbek Castle. A start has been made. Let us convince you to help us to continue the cultural work which has been so successful until now. The Donati Reinbek Castle Foundation is an endowment fund under the umbrella of the Stormarn Citizens' Foundation.
