Welcome to the castle of Neuenbürg

Discover the castle of Neuenbürg and its 800-year-old history

Around 1200, the Counts of Calw-Vaihingen built a castle with a defensive wall, keep and moat on the mountain, which was already settled by the Celts. Count Konrad of Calw-Vaihingen named himself Count of Neuenbürg in the mid 13th century. The town of Neuenbürg was first mentioned in a document in the 13th century.

At that time, the Habsburg royal family also expressed an interest in the strategically well-located castle with the purchase of the Neuenbürg castle for the empire. Neuenbürg itself was part of Baden at that time. The people of Württemberg were soon to take over the castle from the imperial possession.

In the 16th century, long-term renovations and extensions of the castle in the Renaissance style began. Originally, Neuenbürg Palace was planned as the residence of the Württemberg dukes.

Despite a devastating fire in the Thirty Years’ War and a hastily arranged reconstruction, Neuenbürg Castle is still one of the most important architectural monuments in the south-west of Germany. Neuenbürg Castle has been one of the top ten attractionsin the region since 2010.
