What you see was built in 1603-1609, as a residence for a bishop of some kind, so it's not a castle.
Here is a more thorough construction history, but it's in German; http://www.wewelsburg.de/pages/geschichte/geschi.shtml?navId=2

Plan of tower; http://www.wewelsburg.de/media/verlies_gross.jpg

Some 3D plans and virtual tour; http://www.wewelsburg.de/pages/rundgang/burg_vr_auswahl.shtml?navId=7

It seems that this castle was the center of some form of Nazi cult.
A french site detailing some of this, with a good bibliography; http://www.heresie.com/wewelsburg.htm

A plan of the caslte surroundings. Wierd! From a hollow earth site; http://www.hohle-erde.de/body_wewelsburg.html

This web site; http://people.freenet.de/buendnis/wewelsburg_archiv.htm
States; "Die Wewelsburg besitzt bei den Nazis eine besondere Bedeutung. Im „Tausendjährigen Reich“ ausgebaut als Reichsführer Schule der SS, um eine Arische Führerelite zu erschaffen...."
Roughly translates to "The Wewelsburg has a special meaning for the Nazis. Built and fitted out in the thousand year 'Reich' as a 'Reich' leaders school for the SS, to produce an arian ruler elite..."
