Castle market

The castle market , even Fuggerschloss called, is located above the village market , a district of Biberbach in Swabian district of Augsburg .


The listed ensemble consists of the rear (east) castle to the keep and the Front (Western) Castle with the Onoldsbacher tower. The Spornburg above the Schmutter on the edge of the Lech Valley presumably dates from the 14th century and first belonged centrally to the rule of the Rechbergers, then the Pappenheimers . The castle was acquired by Jakob Fugger together with the Biberbach rulers in 1508 and rebuilt as a castle in 1525 . The keep, the wall system and the Onoldsbacher tower have been preserved. The Catholic castle chapel of St. John the Baptist from 1738 to 1739 by Simon Rothmiller with a former chaplain’s house and some manor buildings from the 19th century also belong to the complex .

The western part is used as a riding stables. The keep was renovated in 2013. The Bavarian-Swabian Jakobusweg leads past the entrance of the castle to Markt.

At the entrance to the castle is the villa Lillefors, built in the French style of the 18th century by Carl-Anton Prince Fugger-de Polignac, who laid out several themed gardens there.
