    In front of the castle you can park for 2 hours and access is free. From the tower you have a nice view.

    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 World War II and later resumed. The keep, remains of the palace and the castle walls have been preserved from the original castle. In 2009 the castle was rebuilt 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.

    Hengebach Castle is located in Heimbach (Eifel), a town in the northern Eifel, above the Rur in the Düren district, North Rhine-Westphalia.
    The hilltop castle is on a 216 m above sea level rising freely from the Rurtal. NN high ridge built oval ring castle of the 12th to 14th centuries. The core of the complex is the western courtyard from the 12th to 13th centuries with the keep / hall combination. The eastern part of the castle complex belongs to the expansion of the 14th century. This includes the forecourt of the castle, the garden and the kennel. The residential buildings erected on the south side above the Rur valley, which are also set up for defense purposes, also originate from this construction phase.

    About 65 steps separate the visitor from the plateau of the keep. But it's worth climbing it. The view is nice.

    A shame :( those days were still at the castle. Of course not a soul was there, how can a restaurant survive there ... The restaurant ( no longer exists. We love tarte flambée.
