Hünegg Castle was built in 1861-63 for the Prussian Baron Albert Emil Otto von Parpart. However, he was only able to enjoy the castle for a few years since he died in 1869. Ten years after its completion, it was sold to the Berlin commercial judge Karl Lehmann. He owned the property for only six years before it was acquired by Gustav Lemke-Schuckert. Lemke-Schuckert, an architect from Wiesbaden, renovated the interior in the Art Nouveau style. The castle remained in private hands until 1958 when the Canton of Bern bought it. Today it houses the Renaissance Revival and Art Nouveau Museum.
