Pratteln Castle Title Pic

Pratteln Castle was built around 1275 in northern Switzerland and served as a fortified residence of the von Eptingen family. The building was designed for secure living rather than for military defence.

The castle consists of a main building, with two wings connected by a wall, forming a square structure with an enclosed courtyard. The entire building is surrounded by a short wall. A tower and gatehouse protect the only entrance which at one time had a drawbridge over a moat.

My reconstruction of Pratteln Castle is 30 x 30 inches (96 x 96 studs) and is about 21 inches high.
