Description of Schloss Reinhardsbrunn or Castle Reinhardsbrunn

 

Despite its medieval look Schloss Reinhardsbrunn was actually constructed in 1827 by Ernest I, Duke of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha. This former royal country house is build on a site of the medieval monastery of the Benedictine Order that stood here since 1085 after order of Count Ludwig the Jumper of Thyringia. Since 1093 the abbey came under personal Papal protection. This Benedictine monastery was captured in 1525 during German Peasants' War. The site was abandoned and fell in disrepair until 19th century when current royal residence was constructed here. After the World War II the chateau was transformed into Soviet Military hospital for the Russian soldiers who were wounded in the last weeks of the war. Eventually it was nationalized by the DDR and used by the government.
