NOTES: A castle existed on the site since the 12th century but only some ruins remained by the 19th when the Duke of Saxe-Meiningen began the building of the Schloss as a summer retreat, although it was seldom used. The designers of the building were Dobner and von Heideloff and construction began in 1836. When the Duke was in England to attend the funeral of his brother-in-law William IV he requested Wyatville to provide details and alterations to the design of the Rittersaal or Knight's Hall. The building is now a hotel.
