The complex served as the seat of the Teutonic Order in the Ballei Swabia-Alsace-Burgundy for 560 years; she is the oldest surviving commander of this knightly order. After the dissolution of the Teutonic Order in 1806, the castle was used as a military hospital for two years during the liberation wars against Napoleon Bonaparte. According to one theory, Kaspar Hauser, whose identity has not been clarified to this day, lived in the castle for a year and a half between 1815 and 1816. From 1820 to 1980 it was a children's home. Until the end of 2016, Schloss Beuggen served as a meeting and meeting place for the Evangelical Church in Baden as well as a location for various events.Source Wikipedia Beuggen Castle
