List of the fortresses and castles of the Nahe-Hunsrück region

In the years 900-1500 fortified castles were spread throughout the region in a dense network. With circular walls, a palace (residential building), a keep (strong tower) and economic wings, they formed the defensible residence of the nobility. Here the castle peace was valid (legal protection of walled market places in the Middle Ages) and in the so-called castle ban (surrounding countryside of the castle) feuds were excluded and each breach of the peace was severely punished. The following list contains the most famous castles and palaces in the Nahe Valley and the Hunsrück region.
