    The Seligenstadt moated castle is definitely worth visiting, unfortunately only from the outside. But it is located in a somewhat remote part of Seligenstadt and you can enjoy it all in peace

    A small tour of this idyllic place is definitely worth it.

    Instead of an older moated castle, the Blessed Abbot Francis II had the current water castle built around 1700.

    One of the absolute highlights of today's tour. The moated castle with the drawbridge is definitely worth a detour. Unfortunately, it can only be viewed from the outside.

    The castle is located on the southeastern outskirts of Seligenstadt near the river Main, west of Klein-Welzheim.
    It was built in place of an older moated castle whose age can not be specified exactly.
    Possibly it is identical with a castrum mentioned in 1266, which was abandoned after the construction of Palatinate Seligenstadt.
    The moat of the plant should go back to the older castle. Another building on the same site is said to have been destroyed during the Thirty Years' War.
    The Seligenstadt Abbot Francis II Blöchinger had the current moated castle built during his tenure (1695-1715), probably around 1700 or 1705.
    It served as a garden house for the early modern-courtly festival culture in the garden of the Seligenstadt Abbots.
    A century later, the Wasserburg came through the secularization in land ownership.
    Since 1972 it is privately owned and was restored monument.
    The Wasserburg is the starting point of the cultural cycle path "Kurmainzer Herz" of the Rhein-Main Regional Park.

    Nice water burgers with a drawbridge in Seligenstadt, a little hidden, but all the more beautiful
