The ruins of Wulp Castle (German: Ruine Wulp or Burg Wulp) is a castle located in the municipality of Küsnacht and the canton of Zurich in Switzerland. It was built during the high Middle Ages. Despite this, the castle is documented only in a few found texts, and much of the castle’s history is not known. However, in the chronicle of Muri Abbey, a castle that could perhaps fit Ruine Wulp’s description - a castle in proximity to Zurich and Lake Zurich - was mentioned, but this has not been confirmed by other findings and is mere speculation. Also, a person named Eghart of Küsnacht was mentioned in the chronicle and several other documents to be the owner of the castle in the late 11th century.
