Dear Peter! Who did this Castle belong to and why it is blasted - in the war-time or from time? Best wishes. Eva

Dear Eva I like your insatiable desire for knowledge :) This castle is Medieval. Dates back to 1255 and was given up around 1740 and its brick walls then supplied neighbouring towns and castles with bricks. It played a role in the old wars with Sweden and city of Lübeck in Northern Germany. Yours Peter
