The water castle of Weims

Description

This castle built on the water, a fief from Aachen Minster, was first mentioned in 1334. It was created in the 14th century by partition from the manor of Libermé and was the seat of a collateral line of the von Libermé family. The complex, including its drawbridge, was seriously damaged in the Thirty Years' War (1618-1648). Following successful restoration, the manor house with its beautiful stairwell and oakwood doors, together with the moat and the working quarters, was listed as a historical monument.

Today's owner has set up a B&B with comfortable rooms.
