Description of Mespelbrunn Castle


Mespelbrunn Castle was originally found in 1427 by Hamann Echter. He replaced an original mansion with a bigger mansion and a moat that surround it. The oldest surviving part of the castle is the round watch tower that was used by the bandits that used to live in the Spessart Forest. They used to rob travellers that passed through these forests, but in the time of trouble they would hide in their stronghold to protect against law enforcing forces.
