Flitzing Castle

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Flitzing Castle was the ancestral seat of the Counts of Flitzing , who have been recorded in Flitzing (Upper Bavaria) since the 10th century .


The manor house was built on a small hill on the south-western edge of the village. Only a few sources have come down to us from the building. An engraving by the Bavarian court copper engraver Michael Wening from 1723 shows a two-storey hipped roof building . The house is surrounded by a balcony all around. Below the hill, a moat surrounds the castle. The engraving shows a smaller property and an orchard belonging to the house.

Up until the 17th century, Flitzing Castle was the seat of the Flitzinger family and their Hofmark family . In 1687, with the death of Maria von Flitzing, the family died out. Maria moved to Haag Castle in 1632 after her marriage to Count Franz von Lodron .

After the Hofmark was dissolved , the property fell into disrepair. Today there are no more traces of the castle to be seen. Only the remains of the moat provide information about the former location.
