Heidelberg Castle Heidelberg Castle, located in Heidelberg, Germany, is home to a very torturous history. It was originally built as a fort, but later made into a castle around 1544. It stands facing the Neckar River. It was destroyed by Tilly’s troops in 1622. It was rebuilt by Prince Elector Karl Ludwig between 1649 and 1680. However, this was not long lasted, as it was again destroyed by the French in 1693. Later, Prince Elector Karl Theodor tried to renovate it but, yet again, to no avail. Lighting struck the castle in 1764 starting a fire. Today, it is used for Dinner Banquets, Balls, and Theatre Performances. It is part of the Heidelberg Castle Festival.
