Castle with massive renaissance tower in Septfontaines

The  exact time of the  first castle in Septfontaines, is no longer observed. What historians know that in 1192 a certain Tider as Lord of Seven Born appeared in a document. In 1233 presents John of Septfontaines his property under the rule of the country Princess Ermesinde.

At the beginning of the 14th century, Thomas Siebenborn, the friend and companion of Emperor Henry VII., was the lord of the manor of Septfontaines.

1600 Christoph von Criechingen built at the northern entrance a massive renaissance tower.

The castle is privately owned and not open to visitors.
