    The castle is privately owned, but from the outside you can see everything. It dates from 1172.

    The new SCHLOSS TÜSCHENBROICH in the district of the same name in the town of Wegberg was created in 1630 from the former outer bailey of a moated castle. This evidently arose from the rebuilding of a former moth hill.
    In the immediate vicinity there is a grain mill and an oil mill.

    Lowland moth
    In the middle of the pond of Tüschenbroich Castle, the Kahnweiher, lies the lowland moth with remains of the old castle walls. It has a diameter of 70 meters and is 10 meters high. In 1172 an Alard von Tüschenbroich is mentioned as Gladbacher Ministeriale. It is still unclear whether it is related to our Tüschenbroich. Tüschenbroich used to be a subordinate of Wassenberg and belonged to the Duchy of Jülich. In 1624 the old castle burned down on the Motte.

    Tüschenbroich Castle
    The new castle, of which only one wing still stands today, was built on the site of the former outer bailey. The north tower is completely preserved, the south tower as a ruin. The castle was built in 1630 by Count Franz von Spiering. His descendants sold the entire site to the Erkelenz notary Hermann Josef Gormanns. The former farm building was converted into a residential wing after the main house collapsed (1876). The Lord von Tüschenbroich had the wood power op Meynweyde with 1 voeder Holz (1633).

    The historical nucleus was that which is now overgrown by trees
    Moth from Carolingian times. This moth Tüschenbroich
    (Ground monument on an island in the middle of the castle pond)
    was built in the 9th century as a fortification and moated castle
    built with a fortified hill and first mentioned in 1172
    as Thuschinbroc. The buildings are in the Thirty Years War
    burned down.
    Tüschenbroich belonged to Wassenberg and later
    to the Duchy of Jülich.
    In 1624 Franz von Spiering bought Tüschenbroich, which had been destroyed in the war
    for the price of 24,200 Reichstaler. He left the facility as a
    Rebuild the moated castle on the "mainland", whereby
    the former outer bailey to the main castle than 35 meters
    long brick building with tower was rebuilt.
    The renovation work dragged on until the 18th century.
    Only one tower remains from the older outer bailey.
    Renovation work followed again in 1876
    the castle was badly damaged after a storm.

    The hike on the Schwalm can be combined with a view of Tüschenbroich Castle.
    The source of the Schwalm is located in the Geneiken district, not far from NSG Tüschenbroicher Wald with the Tüschenbroich moated castle, which was built in 1172, destroyed and rebuilt several times. The castle has a flour mill (now a restaurant) and an oil mill (now a studio). Tüschenbroich Castle is now privately owned.
