Description of Löwenburg Castle

 

Löwenburg Castle was designed by Christoph Heinrich Jussow and constructed in 1793- 1800. The castle architecture was influenced by the medieval German castles. A collection of 16th and 17th century weapons inside further increased the similarities. Its first resident Wilhem IX lived here for 21 years and after his death was buried underneath the castle chapel. Much of the dungeon and parts of the castles was destroyed by the RAF (Royal Air Force- British) night raids during World War II. Neighboring town of Kassel suffered a worse bombings that wiped out 90% of the original city.
