The Castle "Höfe", situated close to the town Marburg in Northern Hesse, Germany, was regarded in research history only as a Carolingian Fortress, which was erected in the second half of the 8th and deceased in the 9th c. AD. It belonged to the fortification system which was built in the hinterland of the Frankish-Saxon border and worked as backbone facilities for the war against the Saxons.
The study confirms the existence of the Carolingian period, but shows also that this castle was in use until the 11 th c. AD and served as a palatium for the wandering German kingdom. Inside his double wall-constructed ringwall a round chapel and an early storeyed-constructed house was built.
Moreover the final datation of the further Carolingian Fortresses in Northern-Hesse is corrected, most of them seem to have been existing until the high Middle Ages (11th c. AD). In this period deep changes in the system of power between kingdom and territorial dukes forced their destruction and the erection of new, smaller castles of the local nobility.
