Hohenburg

Ruins of the castle, palace and fortress of Homburg

In the 12th century, the Hohenburg was the seat of the Counts of Homburg, who received city rights for their town at the foot of the castle hill in 1330. After the death of the last Count of Homburg in 1449, the castle and the city fell to the Counts of Nassau-Saarbrücken. They expanded and fortified the castle with bastions. The French King Louis XIV commissioned Sébastien Prestre de Vauban, his famous master fortress builder, to transform it into a modern citadel.

The city itself received a city wall for the first time. The street layout of the old town dates from this period (1679-1697). The fortress had to be finally razed in 1697 and 1714.

Since 1981 the ruins on the castle hill have been uncovered and secured.  Most of them date back to the fortress period.
