From the medieval castle complex to the residential castle.

Droyssig Castle has its origins in a medieval castle complex, which was built at the beginning of the 13th century to secure an important road junction. The oldest parts of the castle church date back to this time. After the complex changed hands several times, it was acquired by the von Hoym family, who initiated the redesign of the castle into a residential castle at the beginning of the 17th century.

At the beginning of the 13th century, the imposing castle was built by crusaders who brought with them experience in castle building from the Orient. Today, this building, which is unique for the German region, is still almost completely preserved. Surrounded by a moat, a circular double ring of walls rose from which six tall, narrow and elongated semicircular towers protruded far outwards at regular intervals, while a round keep towered in the centre of the complex, offering a wide view.
