A fortified defense castle already stood high above the still young Neckar River between Black Forest and Swabian Alb in the year 1062.
The castle was enlarged to a three-wing residential castle over the years, whose different construction styles reflect the spirit of the ages of renaissance, baroque and new gothic.
From rowdy and violent knights to religious friars - the owners of the castle were from time to time very unlike! The castle also belonged to the duke of Wurttemberg for some time.
In the year 1720, the baron Rupert Rassler von Gamerschwang bought the castle. Until present days, his descendants are owners of the castle.
The community Starzach between the Black Forest and the Swabian Alb was founded in 1972 in the course of the merging of the towns Bierlingen, Felldorf and Wachendorf, which were independent towns until then. The community towns Sulzau and Borstingen also count to it today.
The community, with about 4000 residents, has its name from the two creeks Starzel and Eyach. The lowest point of the community Starzach is the Neckar River in the town part Sulzau (357 meters above sea level). The highest point is in the forest of the Bierlingen community (about 546 meters above sea level).
All town parts were in knightly ownership until the beginning of the 19th centurey and had different owners. In 1805, all town parts went to Wurttemberg and belonged to the Oberamt (chief county) Horb from 1807 on.
