For over 700 years, Bückeburg Castle has been a living mirror of the times.
Bückeburg Castle was first mentioned in documents around the 13th century as a residential and defence tower under the name "buckeborch". It served to guard an important long-distance trade route that led from the Baltic to the Rhine.
The 16th century (1560-1620) had the greatest impact on Bückeburg Castle: the medieval fortress developed into a brilliant Renaissance palace. Subsequently, in the 18th century (1732), the façades and interior were remodelled in the Baroque style.
