Castle of Hettingen
The Castle of Hettingen is a cultural monument of special importance. The building is situated in a controlling position for the city on a rock in the east-side of the city. From the medieval castle plant the high repel-wall is received in the north. The residential building was established around 1720 by Franz Anton von Speth. With the building of the new castle, the roman foundations of the old castle has been included. The upper floors are opened by magnificent wood stairs from the building time, which is decorated with stately wood-figures of the Herold on the posts. The very plastic looking stucco ceilings shows landscapes and scenes in extensively ornamentic framing. Some ceilings exhibit even stucco works from the time of rococo (around 1770). The connection from castle and city is by the received thigh-walls, which documents former connections between the military walls of the settlement and the attachment of the seat of the ariaristocracy families, still visibly.
