    Hohenlimburg Castle is a former hilltop castle on the so-called Schlossberg in the Hohenlimburg district of Hagen in North Rhine-Westphalia.
    The complex dates back to the 13th century. Until 1807/08 the castle was the political center and administrative seat of the then existing county of Limburg. Significant renovations were carried out towards the middle of the 16th century and in the first half of the 18th century, when the castle was the seat of the Counts of Bentheim-Tecklenburg. From 1816/17 until around 1830 the castle served the princes as the main residence; it was then moved back to Rheda Castle, which is still the residence of the Prince of Bentheim-Tecklenburg-Rheda to this day; Hohenlimburg Castle is also in his possession and houses the German Cold Rolling Museum.
    Hohenlimburg Castle is one of the few hilltop castles in Westphalia that has largely been preserved in its original structural form. It is located at the entrance to the Lennetal, which has more castles and aristocratic residences on its way into the Sauerland. The closest, intact, hilltop castle on the Lenne, albeit in a building that was renovated in the style of historicism until 1914, is Altena Castle.

    The Höhenschloss Hohenlimburg high above the Lenne is the only medieval hill fort of Westphalia, which is largely preserved in its original state,
