Photo: Ronneburg Castle Museum Hessen Germany

Ronneburg Castle is also a museum in the Hessen state of Germany. It is thought to have been built some time around the early to mid 13th century. Now it is a living museum that visitors can explore and get a taste of what castle life may have been like.

Ronneburg Castle is a popular tourist destination and museum in the Hessen State of Germany and one of the most popular aspects of the castle is the amazing and ancient architecture seen here in the towers and turrets. This castle was first mentioned in literature in 1258, although some texts refer to a castle in this region in 1231, which some historians think is the same castle.

Ronneburg Castle was first owned by the Baron of Ysenberg-Budingen, who was also connected to the Hohenlohe family. One of the members of that family, Gottfried III of Hohenlohe-Brauneck decided to sell the castle to the Archbishop of Mainz in 1313. Under the Knights of Rockenburg after this sale the castle was built upon and expanded but from 1339 to 1356, the castle was once again in the possession of the Archbishop of Mainz. Again the castle was expanded and built upon, and in 1424 it was sold off again. ... continue below the picture...
