Breuberg Castle history

Between 1497 and 1556, Breuberg Castle has been updated for artillery resistance and the construction battery towers. In 1528, the Arsenal was built in the castle. During the Thirty Years' War, Swedish troops unsuccessfully tried to capture the castle in 1637. In 1644, the Protestant army was able to capture the castle in a surprise attack and kept it in occupation until the Peace of Westphalia. During the major military conflicts of modern times, such as the Nine Years' War and the War of the Austrian Succession, the fortress was still guarded by troops.
