    September 30, 2018The castle was built around 1700 to 1725 for Count Philipp Reinhard near Kesselstadt from Hanau as a baroque castle in the west of the city of Hanau. It is the oldest baroque castle east of the Rhine, based on the French model.
    Its current appearance goes back as far as possible to renovations from the Wilhelminian era: Landgrave Friedrich Wilhelm von Hessen-Rumpenheim lived only four years (from 1880 to his death in 1884) at the castle, which is little in view of the previous five years of renovation; The rooms of the "Bel Etage", which are now occupied by the Historical Museum, reflect his taste in the style of the Renaissance despite the furniture that has largely been lost. In 1594, Count Philipp Ludwig II bought a piece of land in the area of today's castle in order to have a country house built there. However, this Renaissance palace was destroyed during the Thirty Years War. In the course of the occupation by Napoleon, Schloss Philippsruhe was given away by Napoleon to his sister Pauline Princess of Borghese. After the end of the occupation, the castle park was transformed into an English garden, which is only remembered by the preserved linden alleys. 🚴‍♂️

    The impressive castle with its beautiful park is located directly on the banks of the Main and is very easy to reach by bike.

    From the castle terrace there is a great view of the Main. One of the most beautiful summer spots in Hanau and the surrounding area.
