Kaltenburg Castle history

In 1435, Kaltenburg Castle was besieged and damaged by the troops of the imperial city of Nuremberg. During the Thirty Years' War, the castle was again captured and destroyed in 1634. In 1677 the castle was restored. The irregular pentagon of the outer wall of the zwinger was reinforced with two square and three round fortification towers. In December 2015, the castle was acquired by the interest group Kaltenburg e.V. and the ruins have been restored.

Description of Kaltenburg Castle

Initially, the castle consisted only of a tower house. In the 13th and 14th centuries and between 1450 and 1560 the castle was enlarged to its present size.

In the northwestern side of the castle there is a preserved part of the shield wall, which is 4 meters high and 16 meters long. On the south side of the castle is the preserved part of the enceinte. On the western part of the castle there is a zwinger with the remains of round fortified towers. On the eastern part of the castle there are two completely restored square fortified towers with hipped roofs and a curtain wall between them.
