The Upper Castle Leitershofen is located in Leitershofen , a district of the city of Stadtbergen in the Augsburg district . It is a three-storey, angular main building with gable roofs .


Leitershofen was owned by several Augsburg patricians, including the Rehlinger , Welser and Fugger , who had the current building built around 1730/40. In 1761 the Fuggers sold the castle to Johann Baptist Duile, cellar master of the St. Ulrich monastery and Afra zu Augsburg . The latter had a house chapel set up in 1769. The chapel also had a cross particle .

A few years later, Duile sold the building to St. Georg Abbey in Augsburg , which in 1776 sold it to Madame Sautier. Their son was the owner of the area until 1897. Other owners followed, including the families of von Langenmantel and Moy . Around 1970 it was converted into a lemonade factory, which existed there until 1997, into a residential building.
