The history of the castle
Today’s palace rests on the foundation walls of a defensive fortress dating back to the 12th century. In the 16th and 17th century, the property received its appearance as it can still be seen in our days. It used to be not only the residence of knights, bishops, abbots, bailiffs and electors, but also the place from where they exercised their power.
