Sonnenberg Castle is the ruins of Sonnenberg Castle in Wiesbaden on the hillside of Vordertaunus in Hesse, Germany. It has been built by brothers Count Henry II since 1200. Ruprecht of Nassau built Wiesbaden on a rock as a fortress against neighboring Epstein lords, with whom there is a permanent border dispute. In 1154, Frederick I divided the Nassau family from the Royal Court of Wiesbaden, probably to thank them for their support in the Battle of Rome. The Royal Court of Wiesbaden, which first appeared in 829, was the administrative seat of King Sondegard, founded by Charlemagne. However, the district's courts are within the jurisdiction of the Eppstein family. The complex space allocation of ownership of these two houses has caused continuous conflict.

The result is a functional central building, which became a model for numerous Protestant church buildings in Germany until the end of the First World War. The trend-setting building from the Wilhelminian period has been able to preserve its original shape to this day.
