HISTORY OF THE MAIEN-FELS CASTLE
The Maienfels Castle at Wustenrot in the Heil-bronn district was built between 1230 and 1250. The core of the castle, still largely intact, was completely surrounded by a curtain wall. At that time, the lords of Neudeck were the in-habitants and owners of the castle. Over the course of the fourteenth century, it became more of a so-called “Ganerbiat”.
This means that several knightly families shared the ownership of the castle. In the year 1441, during a feud, the Maienfels Castle was besieged, conquered and partly destroyed. Over the next twenty years, the castle was rebuilt under a new Ganerbiat (community of heirs). Parts of the castle were adapted to the new military requirements which arose from the development of firearms.
