The Thuringian Castle Days are a program of the Thuringian Treasure Chamber - a cultural tourism brand in the association of 13 institutions with 20 residences. The aim is to make the cultural heritage of Thuringia's residences visible nationwide and to act as a reliable partner within the state's overall tourism strategy.

The joint brand "Schatzkammer Thüringen" is coordinated under the direction of the Friedenstein Foundation Gotha. As part of "Open Friedenstein!" the Federal Commissioner for Culture and the Media is providing funding for this and other projects through the sponsorship of the Gotha Foundation.
