Long Description:
It was built in the 12th century as a Franciscan monastery. In 1636, George, Duke of Brunswick-Lüneburg chose the Leineschloss as his residence.
During World War II, the Leineschloss burnt out fully after British aerial bombings. The architect Dieter Oesterlen re-built the castle between 1957 and 1962.
