Willibaldsberg Castle history
In the 13th, 14th and 15th centuries the fortifications of the castle were extended, including the zwinger. In the spring of 1633, during the Thirty Years' War, the Swedish army was able to capture the castle. At the end of October 1633, the Bavarian army managed to recapture the fortress and successfully defend it from the attacks of the Swedish troops.
In 1962, the castle passed into the possession of the Bavarian Administration of State-Owned Palaces, Gardens and Lakes and extensive renovations have begun. The castle houses several museums.
