Instead of heaps of prohibition signs to set up they should rather maintain the public park, but the castle itself looks great.
The Wasserburg was built in the 13th century and was the ancestral seat of the Knights of Bergerhausen. Around 1320 the brothers of Bergerhausen sold part of the property to the Cologne Mariengradenstift. The archbishops of Cologne acquired the rule to defend their territory.
1334 gave Archbishop Walram Burg Bergerhausen for services rendered to the Knight Hans-Ulrich von Bergerhausen.
Around 1430, the descendants provided the castle with strong fortifications.
