The former prince-bishop baroque castle was built between 1667 and 1675 as a residence for Bishop Ernst August I of Brunswick-Lüneburg and his wife Sophie von der Pfalz, who moved their residence from Iburg to Osnabrück.
The castle garden with an area of more than three hectares was planned in 1674 by the French garden architect Martin Charbonnier.

After the destruction in the Second World War, the castle and garden were redesigned. Since 1974, the castle is the seat of the administration of the University of Osnabrück. The garden is today a popular green oasis in the city.
