    First mentioned in a document is Haus Nesselrath in 1303 as a fief of the Abbey of Deutz. In the documents the castle is called both Nesselrath, as well as Nesselrode. Both final syllables are toponyms for grubbing. The originally two-part Wasserburg was built around 1300 by the Bergischen ministerial nobility Nesselrode and inhabited. 1511 acquired the noble family Ketteler the knight's seat and built the castle in 1536 fundamentally.

    There are good paved roads, there are rest stops and nature and the old half-timbered houses are great photo opportunities.

    Among other potatoes and strawberries are grown here, which are sold directly from the farm

    The former moated castle from the year ~ 1300 is today a farm with geese running around happily from May until the Christmas time.

    The geese are a beautiful motif as a reminder of the tour ... and maybe the next Martinsgans 😉
