Kasselburg Castle

Pelm (Kreis Daun)

Kasselburg Castle, situated high up on a cliff top in the Eifel mountains, is un-doubted one of the most impressive castle ruins in Germany.

The eight-story dwelling tower from the mid 14th century is unique. With its original steep roofs it must have made and even more towering impression.

The remaining structural parts of the castle are more decayed, but the upper castle, with its Romanesque castle keep, residential buildings and chapel from the 14th century, does also convey a clear impression of the ambitions of the lords of Blankenheim.

At the end of the 19th century, the Rhenish Railway Company had the great tower restored as an attraction for travelers on the line from Cologne to Trier.
