The castle dates back to the 12th century, has been constantly expanded over the centuries, and acquired its present form in the late 16th century through extensive alterations and new constructions of the current representative Renaissance castle with its two corner towers, the west wing, and the north wing. In the 18th century, the south and east wings were raised by one floor each and parts of the representative rooms were redesigned in the late Baroque style. In 1835, the south and east wings burned down. Subsequently, the east wing was rebuilt in the late-classicist style and the south wing was repaired.

The exterior dimensions of the four wings form an approximately square with side lengths of about 51 m x 53 m and enclose a courtyard with side lengths of about 32 m x 30 m.

In the years 1986-1993, the castle and the adjacent building (castle tavern) were completely renovated. As part of the overall renovation, structural renewals and additional measures, such as the installation of heating, plumbing, and electrical installations, were carried out to give the property a contemporary use. The timber frame and Dippelbaum ceilings were also renewed. The interior of the two towers on the 3rd and 4th floors was not renovated. These are not in good condition, but the roof beams of the towers were renewed. The roof covering was also not renewed. Civil defense rooms were installed in the existing basement of the north wing, including a partial area of the courtyard. These civil defense rooms are no longer in use today.

The west facade is designed as a representative showcase facade and stands out from the other facades. On the courtyard side, the west wing is bordered by a late-classicist annex (around 1835). In the south tower, the castle chapel is located on the first floor, whose high interior extends up to the first floor.

Southwest of the castle building is the annex of the castle tavern. The large interior rooms also have vaults with rich stucco decoration.

A large pond and wooded areas are also part of this imposing property, as well as some former utility buildings and a transformer station.
