Münzenberg Castle history
In the mid-1150s the castle was expanded, and significant parts of the defensive walls were built around the inner bailey, the eastern keep, and the gate building with a chapel above it. Around 1260 the construction of defensive walls was completed, and the second keep was built in the western part of the inner bailey. Around 1424 the middle gate and the outer bailey with a defensive wall with battery towers were built.
During the Thirty Years' War, in 1628, the army of the imperial commander Wallenstein bombarded the castle and caused great damage. After this shelling, the castle turned into ruins and was not subsequently restored until 1846.
