The Burg Castle has quite an unusual name for a German castle. It's like a dog of Lt. Colombo, which is called Dog, because "Burg" is translated as "castle."

The main building of the castle was built in 1218-1225 by Archbishop of Cologne, Count Engelbert II. In the XIII-XIV centuries the castle was the principal residence of the Counts of Berg. In the XV century the castle had been reconstructed, after which it became a hunting lodge and got its present name. The castle took part in battles and was destroyed by the Swedes in 1648. Reconstruction of the castle lasted 24 years and ended in 1914. This is one of the largest reconstructed fortifications in West Germany.
