Badenweiler Castle history

Excavations at the castle and on the castle hill show that the Romans built a fort to protect the Aqua Villa (modern Badenweiler). Later, the Alamanni built a hilltop castle to secure their territory. Subsequently, this castle was captured by the Franks. Around 1122 the House of Zähringen built or rebuilt the castle to protect their silver mines. In the 14th century, the outer fortifications were built due to constant disputes with neighboring lords. During the Franco-Dutch War, on November 20, 1677, the French troops units moved to Badenweiler and demanded the inclusion of a French garrison in the castle. This was approved by officials under certain conditions. However, the French garrison did not fulfill the agreed conditions, and on April 6, 1678, the castle was captured by French troops, who set fire to and partially blew up the castle. After that, the castle was not restored.
