Arnsberg Castle is located on the 256-meter-high Schlosberg Hill in Arnsberg, North Rhine-Westphalia, and was probably built as a castle by Earl Wall-Arnsberg around 1100. After the relocation of the headquarters, it was the residence of the Earl of Arnsberg until 1368. As the county became the property of the Archbishop of Cologne and later the Elector, it became the ruling center of the Duchy of Westphalia. The electors lived there during the visit, Landdrost lived there as the seat of the governor, and Landtage also held some meetings there. Around 1575, Salentin, the elector of Isenburg, transformed the castle in Renaissance style. Under the leadership of Maximilian Heinrich, another reconstruction was carried out in 1654. In 1739, under the leadership of Elector Clemence August, the building was fundamentally transformed in Baroque style by architect John Conrad Schraun. The castle was destroyed during the Seven Years War in 1762. Today, the building is in ruins.
