Kirchberg Castle


From the castle to the Renaissance chateau

Kirchberg Castle was built in 1240 by Raben von Kirchberg as a castle with a chapel. By the year 1400 the complex was extended and at the beginning of the 15th century it was included in the town fortifications of Kirchberg. After several changes of ownership, at the end of the 16th century it was converted from a medieval castle into a Renaissance-style chateau. After being used only as a residential castle, Kirchberg Castle served as a museum and forester’s lodge until 1945. After the end of the Second World War, it housed a home for the elderly and a boarding school of the Kirchberg Castle School. Today it is used as a hotel and venue for events.
