The Castle was built in XIII century, and was the base of the castellan and later of Prince Bolko I and his successors. From XVI century it was the base of the imperial deputy. Damaged after the Thirty-year War, the castle was rebuilt by Otto von Nostitz to the form of a modern residence. His ambition was to create an imitation of Viennese court, but further rebuilds from XVIII and XIX century faded away the shape of a baroque residence. Up to this day the only part of a renaissance character is the west wing, and of a baroque one - the north-east wing. Since 1746 till the end of the 1950-ties there was a prison in the castle (in 1888–1945 for women only). During the World War II the members of the Resistance from Norway and France were imprisoned there, this is commemorated by a monument situated in the courtyard.

It is a shame that this interesting object is in such a dire state, there is nothing to see there apart for the monument in the courtyard, the whole place looks abandoned and collapsing, so potentially a great touristic attraction is completely not utilized. Locals told me that there are plans to open the castle tower for tourists… well’see…
