Artist's Description

Nanstein Castle is the landmark of the Sickingen town of Landstuhl. It was built in 1150 by Emperor Frederick Barbarossa above a 15 meter high sandstone ledge. The fortress was part of the Hohenstaufen protections guarding the old imperial lands in the southwestern Palatinate. Nanstein Castle is first mentioned in a document in 1189. Franz von Sickingen modernized the medieval fortress in the 16th century and turned it into a “mountain castle” that was supposed to withstand the guns of the time. In 1523, in the so-called “Imperial Knights’ War”, the castle was shot to pieces and Franz von Sickingen, the “last knight”, died there of his wounds.

His sons received the ruin back from the Electorate of the Palatinate as a feudal tenure in 1542 and immediately rebuilt it as a mighty Renaissance castle. In 1668 the fortifications were blown up upon the order of the Elector of the Palatinate. The castle contains architectural traces from five centuries.
