Waldeck Castle history

During the Thirty Years' War, the castle became a refuge for the citizens of the town of Kemnath and the nobility from the surrounding area. In 1648 the castle was besieged by Swedish troops. The garrison of the castle went over to the side of the Swedish troops and the castle was captured. During the occupation of the Swedish troops, the defense of the castle was improved. During the War of the Spanish Succession, the castle was besieged by imperial troops and taken in October 1704, and by order of the emperor, the castle was destroyed. Since 1982 the ruins of the castle have been restored.
