The castle’s northern wing originally was the residence of the Bishops of Passau. Around 1416 Count Johann II of Schaunberg had it replaced by “Newe Veste”, which first served as home for widows. The eastern wing, where the administrator used to live, also dates from the 15th century. The southern and western wings which you can see above were only added in 1784.
