Lion's Castle (Löwenburg) in Bergpark Wilhelmshöhe, Kassel Germany

The Lion's Castle has a picturesque location in the Bergpark Wilhelmshöhe. From afar, it appears to visitors as a romantic knight’s castle from the Middle Ages. However, it was actually built between 1793 and 1801. Conceived as a pseudomedieval 'ancestral castle' by its commissioner, Landgrave Wilhelm IX of Hesse-Cassel, later Prince Elector Wilhelm I, Heinrich Christoph Jussow, the court’s master architect, realised the bold plans. The Lion's Castle served not as a fortress, but as a leisure palace. As a result, its interior features stately living quarters, arranged with a rich assortment of historic furniture, paintings, tapestries, glass, bronze, a grand arms collection and medieval stained glass windows, which are indicative of the builder’s great passion for collecting.
