Google's machine translation is a useful starting point for translations, but translators must revise errors as necessary and confirm that the translation is accurate, rather than simply copy-pasting machine-translated text into the English Wikipedia.
Do not translate text that appears unreliable or low-quality. If possible, verify the text with references provided in the foreign-language article.
The castle is also known as Lindenschmidt. It was built for the lords of Fleckenstein and in 1283 it became a fief of the Holy Roman Empire. It was a lair of brigands at the end of the 14th century. The castle is divided into two parts which, at some time in its history, belonged to different lords.
