The Schloss Martfeld was originally a knight seat of Kurköln and was built at the beginning of the 14th century. The castle belonged to the former castles chain, with which the possessions of the Cologne archbishop should be protected from access. At the beginning of the 18th century, the castle was quite dilapidated because it was no longer used. A merchant acquired the property and converted it to its present form. In 1954 de Stadt Schwelm bought the castle and today you can find the local museum and a castle café.

Unfortunately, at the time without refreshments, as the last restaurateur has terminated the lease with the city. If you just want a cold drink or a coffee after a hike or bike ride, you can do so - at least in good weather - on the terrace of the nearby tennis club, where guests are welcome.
