Parsberg Castle

Parsberg, Germany

The Parsberg Castle was first documented in 1205. The first castle was destructed in 1314 by Duke Ludwig of Bavaria due supporting the rebellion. The castle was rebuilt and extended in the end of the 16th century. The next reconstruction took place in the mid-17th century, probably due the damages in Thirty Years' War. The lower castle was added then, where today is a castle museum.

Beautiful intact Castle, there is a museum that is three stories that break the history of the castle into three different time periods. We went here for the Christmas Market but there are different events that take place throughout the year.

It's closed due to COVID. Looks nice from the outside though.

Trencín Castle

Trenčín Castle is relatively large renovated castle, towering on a steep limestone cliff directly above the city of Trenčín. It is a dominant feature not only of Trenčín, but also of the entire Považie region. The castle is a national monument.

History of the castle cliff dates back to the Roman Empire, what is proved by the inscription on the castle cliff proclaiming the victory of Roman legion against Germans in the year 179.

Today’s castle was probably built on the hill-fort. The first proven building on the hill was the Great Moravian rotunda from the 9th century and later there was a stone residential tower, which served to protect the Kingdom of Hungary and the western border. In the late 13th century the castle became a property of Palatine Matúš Csák, who became Mr. of Váh and Tatras.

Matúš Csák of Trenčín built a tower, still known as Matthew’s, which is a dominant determinant of the whole building.
