Birstein Castle in the Municipality of Birstein on the northeastern edge of the Main-Kinzig-Kreis in Hesse has been the Residence of the Counts and (from 1744) princes of Isenburg-Birstein (from 1920 by Isenburg) since 1517.

The Castle stands on a narrow ridge and is grouped around three interlocking courtyards. It evolved from a “Core Castle” from the 12th to the 18th century. Subsequently, the plant was hardly altered. In the 19th Century, fortifications were laid down and a landscape garden was added.
