Destruction and reconstruction of Hugenpoet castle:
The first builders and owners of the "Hugenpoet" castle were the gentlemen of Nesselrode, called Hugenpoet. Like other knights of their time, they were often involved in feuds and attacked goods trains that were heavily armed at the time. So the unrest of the Middle Ages did not spare Hugenpoet. The castle was stormed and burned in 1478 during a feud; only parts of the castle remained until 1756.
In an old description it says that the Nettelshof consists of a tower and a small apartment, which lies in a garden and is surrounded by water (location of today's Laurushaus).
