Marienberg Fortress, Wurzburg: the entrance to the fortress

RIBA114823
NOTES: The founding of the Marienberg Fortress dates back to 1201, although the main castle dates from 1482 as do the walls. From 1600 the fortress was transformed into a Renaissance palace, but rebuilt in 1642 following its capture by Swedish forces in 1631. In 1708 it was redesigned in a Baroque style and the fortifications strengthened. The last tower to be rebuilt was in 1724. The fortress was badly damaged during the Second World War and rebuilt from 1950-1990.
