Döbschütz Castle

Döbschütz, Germany

Döbschütz Castle was built on the right bank of the Schwarzen Schöps was probably built in the 10th-12th centuries. Its existence can be proven for the 10th century, where drawings on the house wall are the basis, and an old kitchen from around 1000 was uncovered in the cellar. In 1874 part of the castle burned down, which was followed by extensive renovations.

The castle was sold in 2001 to the Rößler family, who completely renovated it and opened a museum in 2003. There are also guest rooms in the castle.

After registering in advance via smartphone, there is an appointment for a visit. The castle is privately built and it has been very well done. Nice people and the best information. Recommendable.

A beautiful, rustic, historic and well-preserved moated castle in an idyllic location. A perfect backdrop for great photos. What impressed me even more were the lords of the castle. They are nice and always helpful and lovely people. Thank you for a great and unforgettable day with a medieval and romantic atmosphere.

Hohenwerfen Castle

Hohenwerfen Castle stands high above the Austrian town of Werfen in the Salzach valley. The castle is surrounded by the Berchtesgaden Alps and the adjacent Tennengebirge mountain range. The fortification is a 'sister' of Hohensalzburg Castle both dated from the 11th century.

The former fortification was built between 1075 and 1078 during the Imperial Investiture Controversy by the order of Archbishop Gebhard of Salzburg as a strategic bulwark. Gebhard, an ally of Pope Gregory VII and the anti-king Rudolf of Rheinfelden, had three major castles extended to secure the Salzburg archbishopric against the forces of King Henry IV: Hohenwerfen, Hohensalzburg and Petersberg Castle at Friesach in Carinthia.
