Teck was a ducal castle in the kingdom of W├╝rttemberg, immediately to the north of the Swabian Jura and south of the town of Kirchheim unter Teck (now in the district of Esslingen). Burg Teck takes its name from the ridge, the Teckberg, 2,544 feet high, which it crowned. It was destroyed in the German Peasants' War (1525).[1] The castle was reconstructed during the 19th and 20th centuries.
