Laupen Castle was built in the 10th-13th centuries as part of a line of imperial castles along the Sense and Saane rivers, which meet at Laupen. The castle was built with a keep, main tower, and ring wall on a sandstone spur above the Sense river.
After Laupen became part of the Canton of Bern, the castle was the Bernese administrative headquarters. Until 1798 the castle was the official residence of bailiff of Laupen. The castle was totally renovated in 1983-88.
