More information


The imperial castle of Rochlitz was built presumably in the mid-10th century as part of the castle complex in the March of Meissen. Around the turn of the millenia, the castle was given to the Ekkehardingers. The castle owes its first documented evidence in 1009 when it was burnt down by Margrave Gunzelin. When the property was transferred to Margrave Konrad I of Wettin in 1143, its time as the imperial castle of Rochlitz ended.
