    The castle Rochsburg, probably founded in the late 12th century, stands on a rocky spur that is surrounded by the Zwickauer Mulde on three sides above the eponymous district of Lunzenau in Saxony. The medieval overall layout and its subdivision into the main castle, a forecourt and two kennels are still clearly visible. In its present appearance, however, the castle comes from late Gothic and Renaissance. Its main building phases date from 1470 and from 1548; It is a significant example of Renaissance architecture in Saxony. For centuries Rochsburg formed the eponymous center in the Saxon office Rochsburg. 🙂☝🏻

    Once over the suspension bridge when you come from the Zwickauer Mulde and then the view up to the castle.

    In a particularly beautiful valley section of the Zwickauer Mulde, Rochsburg rises on a 50 meter high rock spur, first mentioned in 1190. It was expanded several times until the 15th century and converted into a castle under the master builder Arnold von Westfalen. Rochsburg Castle received its present appearance in the mid-16th century under the lords of Schönburg. The exterior facilities retained their defensive character, which is still clearly recognizable with the front gate system, the north defense wall with the half-timbered defense corridor, the south defense wall and the upper gate to the inner courtyard. Many visitors associate Rochsburg with something completely different - childhood memories, because from 1932 to 1998 the castle housed a large youth hostel.
