schloss-michelfeld-411.gif (51688 Byte)The castle in the Kraichgau

The former castle 749-mich of the barons of Gemmingen, belongs to the community Angelbachtal in the Kraichgau, about 5 minutes driving distance from the freeway A6 (Mannheim-Nuremberg). The castle, which is idyllically located in a park in the center of the town, is presented in a plain, two-story rectangular building in baroque style from the middle of the 18th century. The neo-classical roof gable and the representative staircase bear witness of the modification of the castle in the 19th century. The water ditch, which used to surround the castle 749-mich , is dried up today. But a stone bridge reminds of the former existence of it. You reach the castle entrance, which is crowned by an emblem of the barons of Gemmingen, over the bridge.

Castle history

The present day the castle 749-mich was probably founded on a water castle fortress from the 12th century. Until the 14th century, the water castle fortress served as a residence for the local aristocracy. The water castle fortress was completely destroyed during the Thirty Years' War (1618 to 1648). The lords of Gemmingen-Hornberg let the former water castle 749-mich to be constructed in 1753 on this site. A great castle palace with restaurant is accomodated in the neighboring estate. From there, you can enjoy the beautiful view over the mansion-like main building.

The community Angelbach valley in the Kraichgau

The community Angelbach valley in the Kraichgau is a quite young community, which, in the course of the Distric Reform in 1972, came into existence through the amalgamation of two towns, which were independant until then. Angelbach received its name from the Angelbach creek which runs through the community. Both town parts can look back on a long history. Both towns were already mentioned in written documentary in the Codex of the South-Hessian monastery Lorsch in the first part of the 9th century. Some very interesting buildings, mostly in baroque style, still remind of past centuries today.
