    A visit to Hengebach Castle is worthwhile if you are in Heimbach.
    The entrance is free and the view from the tower in the Rurtal and over the place simply beautiful.

    The castle was first mentioned in 1106 as the property of the lords of Hengebach. The castle later fell to the Count of Jülich. In 1687 the castle fell victim to a fire. The restorations started in 1904 were destroyed in the Second World War and later resumed. The keep, the remains of the palace and the castle walls have been preserved from the original castle. The castle was rebuilt in 2009 and has been used as an art academy ever since.

    If you want to spoil yourself with a good piece of cake after a hike on and around Heimbach Castle, you will find a good baker / pastry chef in a side street (Am Giebel) opposite the car park at the foot of Castle Hengebach who still understands his craft.

    This "Eifel view" on the keep (220 meters above sea level) of the castle Hengebach offers in south to northwest direction a view over the local situation Heimbachs, whereby two core areas of the national park Eifel are in the field of vision.
    Castle Hengebach, whose beginnings date back to the 11th century, rises majestically above the rooftops of the city on a 180 m long and up to 40 m wide Grauwackefelsen. As a hill fort it was until the invention of gunpowder almost impregnable. In the devastating city fire in 1687, large parts of the castle and the city were destroyed. The plant lost importance and fell apart. In 1979, the castle, which has since been restored in several sections, finally became the property of the city of Heimbach.

    Nice view from the castle. The parking lot at the foot of the castle is also a good starting point for tours.
