In the 18th century, the owner of the neighboring castle were evicted from their property and found shelter in a nearby farmhouse. 75 years later, on its place was built the neo-Gothic castle for the noble family. The approximately 34 m high clock tower was built in 1903. During the Second World War the castle was occupied by German troops. Then, until the late 1970s, the national railway company rented the main building and used it as a holiday home for children of railway employees. In subsequent years, tourists could visit the castle. Around 1990 it was closed because the cost of maintenance increased immeasurably. Since the castle is abandoned, it finally plummets.

The videos and photos were taken during a three-day visit of the castle in January 2012.
PLEASE NOTICE: Inquiries about the location of the castle as well as ways to contact the owner can not be answered by me. I ask this for your understanding.
