    The castle was first mentioned in 1254 and rebuilt in Renaissance style in 1574, and has been given its present appearance.

    When I went to school in Ponitz in the 60s (the last century), our school lunch was in this castle. At that time, this building was not recognizable as a castle.

    Renaissance Ponitz Castle
    In 1574 the medieval moated castle was replaced by a renaissance building.
    The most important owner of the Ponitz Castle was Dr. Wolfgang Conrad von Thumbshirn, who as a diplomat signed the peace treaty to end the 30 Years War on October 14, 1648.
    The entire area is well worth seeing and in a very well-kept condition.
