    Today's Arenfels Castle dates back to the castle built by Gerlach von Isenburg in 1258 and 1259 (west wing and keep). In 1848, Count Ludolf Friedrich von Westerholt acquired the castle Arenfels. He had it rebuilt by the Cologne cathedral master Ernst Friedrich Zwirner neo-Gothic.

    Castle Arenfels is owned by Baron Antonius Geyr von Schweppenburg. (Source: Page "Bad Hönningen" In: Wikipedia, The free encyclopedia, as of: May 16, 2018)

    Arenfels Castle is a medieval castle from the 13th century. Today weddings and other family celebrations as well as conferences and company celebrations can be held there, and there is also a small restaurant called “Schlosseria” with a view of the Rhine Valley.

    "... Arenfels Castle is located above Bad Hönningen in the midst of picturesque vineyards. Thanks to the 365 windows, 52 doors and 12 towers, it is also called" Castle of the Year ".
    Arenfels Castle owes its current appearance to a prominent master builder: Ernst Friedrich Zwirner was a pupil of Karl Friedrich Schinkel. Zwirner, who was entrusted with the completion of Cologne Cathedral, commissioned Count Friedrich Ludolf von Westerholt-Gysenberg to modernize the castle from 1849 to 1858. Extensive changes had already been made around 300 years before the neo-Gothic renovation: Instead of the 13th century castle Arenfels, the three-wing Renaissance castle was rebuilt in the second half of the 16th century. Friedrich Ludolf would have liked to keep the style of the complex in the 19th century, but cathedral builder Zwirner prevailed with his new design language. During the fighting over the Remagen Bridge in World War II, the building structure was severely damaged. The war damage has been repaired today.
    Arenfels Castle attracts with its location in the middle of the vineyards as a romantic venue for weddings, family celebrations and company events. ... "

    In the middle of the vineyards, this castle towers over Bad Hönningen. A bit old, but with a nice outdoor terrace.
