The construction of the original castle dates back to 14th century. The castle experienced many changes in its long history: theft and depredation during the Saxonian feud in 1517, ravages during the thirty year war, destruction following a fire in the year 1893 and finally partial destruction by aircraft bombs in the second World War. 
The Lütetsburg castle today is a new construction that was built on the foundation walls in 1517 in the modern style. The  four-wing construction was built in the years 1956 to 1962 and is today the residence of the family zu Inn- und Knyphausen. - in:
