In pre-Germanic times, the caves served as a refuge. In 1177, Bishop Ullrich built a castle. His opponent Heinrich the Lion, Duke of Saxony, destroyed the castle that was under construction. The princes of Saxony rebuilt it together. Later it served as the summer residence of the bishops of Halberstadt. The castle was destroyed by the Swedes in the Thirty Years' War.halberstadt.de/de/hoehlenwohnungen-altenburg/hoehlenwohnungen-altenburg.html
