Information

The closed Renaissance complex of Steinau Castle was built from 1525 by Philip II and Philip III of Hanau-Münzenberg, incorporating older medieval structures. The core castle was enclosed from 1551 with a pentagonal Zwinger and four corner bastions, which had casemated basements for defense. Steinau Castle is one of the few early modern castle complexes to have almost completely survived. The entire outer defense system with deer moat and retaining wall is an essential element of one of the earliest bastioned castle complexes ever to have survived from the German region.
