“Very old”
Reviewed October 10, 2011

It is located next to the monasterial ruins but as one is securing the ruins again one is not allowed to go inside, a pitty but understandable. It is a big part of the monasterial ruins of Hirsau Abbey. In 1586 - 1592 had the Württemberg Duke Ludwig von Württemberg, had a three wing-Castle in the Renaissance style built next to the ‘Klausure’ at the Abbot house (architect Georg Beer). Destroyed by French troups in 1692 as castle and monastery were set on fire. First, however, mostly roofs were missing, until 1808 the masonry of castle and monastery also disappeared, it was used for the reconstruction of Calw. Of Castle and cloisters only walls remain, of Church and monastery only the foundations.
