Dr. Robert Weigand
Dr. Robert F.E. Weigand, doctor of canon and civil law, (founder and honorary chairman of the German Castles Association (DBV) State Committee for Bavaria, founding member of the Bavarian State Monuments Council among other things), who dedicated his entire life to the tireless development of a variety of well-organised collections, acquired Eggersberg Castle in 1962 and opened it up to the public by establishing a small hotel and restaurant as well as the Hofmark Museum.
He was the founder and initiator of the non-profit Dr. Robert Weigand - Eggersberg Castle Cultural Foundation. Dr. Robert Weigand donated all of the - in some cases - unique and highly significant exhibits in January 2004 to his non-profit foundation, and established the Hofmark Museum for the general public. The small, but truly excellent Hofmark Museum offers high quality, interesting and knowledge-enhancing visits to those interested in culture.
Would you like to help give the past a future too?
Would you like to be involved in securing, developing and refining the educational aspects of the Hofmark Museum? That's wonderful!
