The castle has a long and fascinating history. The original castle was probably built in the late 12th or early 13th century. It was first mentioned in a document in 1265. The present castle was built in 1495 after a fire destroyed part of the original structure. For those who are interested, an extensive history can be found here: second.wiki/wiki/schloss_syrgenstein

The building, which has grown over the centuries, combines five stylistic epochs. It includes the remains of a huge castle complex from the beginning of the 13th century and a three-storey half-timbered house from 1480. In the 18th century, the castle was transformed into a representative palace, and in 1756, the connecting building to the church was built (see photo).
