Braunfels Castle.

Introduction

Braunfels Castle was first erected in 1246 as a defensive fortress against the Counts of Nassau. Expanded between the 15th and 17th centuries, the castle suffered a lot during Thirty Years' War, changing hands seven times between 1621 and 1641.

Following the Romantic movement, Braunfels was remodelled in the neo-Gothic style in 1880. The painting gallery has works by Dutch and Flemish Masters, including Jan van Eyck.
