    Former knight's castle of the Teutonic Order in Blatzheim.
    Not to be missed on the road to Bergerhausen on the Neffelbach.
    Can be rented for parties or whatever these days.
    1602 built the Teutonic Knights Heinrich von Reuschenberg to Setterich commander's castle as a summer residence of the Commander of the Teutonic Order (Kommende Jungen-Biesen).After French troops had occupied the left bank of the Rhine from 1794 to 1802, Joseph von Schaesberg retired to the commander's castle and died there in 1812 as the last Teutonic Knights in Blatzheim.
    When the ecclesiastical possessions in Cologne and Blatzheim were secularized in 1802 and the Order of Napoleon was abolished in 1809, the commander's castle was donated by Napoleon to the French General Georges Mouton de Lobau. Later it became German-owned and continued as an agricultural estate ,

    Also makes perfect sense as a short stop. A coffee shop wouldn't be bad here.
