    The moated castle Paffendorf houses the information center about the Rhenish lignite industry. There is a brasserie in the castle with a beer garden in the castle courtyard.

    The building was built between 1531 and 1546 under Wilhelm von dem Bongard entirely of brick in the Renaissance style on the foundations of a previous building.

    The complex, which was built in the 16th century, is surrounded by moats and consists of the multi-wing, two-storey manor house and the formerly used outer bailey, which encloses a spacious farmyard at right angles. Two massive round towers, diagonally opposite, flank the main building. At the corners, the outer bailey is bordered by massive towers, which, with bevelled bases, reach down into the ditch that was then fed by Erftwasser.

    Directly on the Erft is the very well restored castle with a beautiful castle garden. The outdoor management invites you to linger.

    Beautifully restored castle in the Renaissance style (a little English Tudor style) with castle garden and restoration in the castle courtyard. We owe this to RWE, which charcoal burns brown coal underground in a clearly visible manner.
