A Renaissance castle in the middle of the floodplain forest!
The castle complex in the Auwald is a fine example of the German early Renaissance and was built between 1530 and 1555 as "Old Building" and "New Building". In the "old building" with high stair gables and tower with brightly glazed bricks we find the most important secular Renaissance frescoes in Bavaria. With the themes "hunting" and "love" they decorate the representative and living rooms of the count palatine Ottheinrich. In addition, the floodplain information center has been located in the basement of the castle since April 2009. It provides clear information about floodplains and their habitats, their development and their importance for flood and nature conservation.
