High Castle history

From 1553 the castle was greatly expanded and seven bastions were added. During the Thirty Years' War, the castle was besieged from 1634 to 1636 and destroyed after the surrender. From 1660 the castle was reconstructed. However, already in 1681, the castle defenses were voluntarily destroyed after France extended its rule to Freiburg im Breisgau after the Peace of Nijmegen. On October 13, 1684, a fire, set by servants through negligence, destroyed the former fortress. On October 12, 1688, French troops from Freiburg occupied the remaining remains of the fortress at the start of the Nine Years' War, and on February 17, 1689, they blew up corner towers and part of the walls.

Description of High Castle

The original castle has an oval shape. The gates of the castle are connected by a zwinger, which is located around the entire western side and with the outer bailey. In the inner bailey are the remains of the castle chapel and the foundation of the belfry. The source Die anlage on German.
