Then the castle chapel of Of the Holy Trinity, which has retained its late-medieval character to this day. The contemporary, Baroque appearance of Blutenburg Castle is due to the reconstruction after destruction by the Swedish army during the Thirty Years' War. Currently, the castle is the seat of the International Youth Library.
