Pyrmont Castle

Pyrmont Castle


Experience European cultural history

A picturesque view of the Eifel can be seen from Pyrmont Castle, which was built in 1225. In the course of the following centuries, it was rebuilt several times and in its heyday at the beginning of the 18th century, it was finally converted into a castle by the Barons of Waldbott-Bassenheim. The inevitable decline of Pyrmont Castle then followed as a result of the Napoleonic Wars. In the 1960s, the castle ruins were finally restored by two Düsseldorf architects, Prof. Helmut Hentrich and Dipl. Hubert Petschnigg. The impressive building shows three great epochs of European cultural history and serves as a venue for seminars, painting and photography courses and weddings.
