    A beautiful and great well maintained Castle. We were Sunday around midday there and have a little live concerts can be enjoyed. The sausage was very tasty. The next time we are testing the Brasserie then determined times - that yes a very good reputation.

    Welcome to RWE (not REWE). You realize that it is on the floor of one of the largest German industrial companies. So much money is in the Castle Paffendorf and its great Park. Everything is clean, everything is fantastic. No blocked courtyards (because just the tiles down crumble), no building parts that are imposed with plan (because the cracked wall is restored when there is money), no rusty playground equipment from the 1970s, no verunkrauteter rose garden from the eighties, no deep fryers-food, no leased, outrageously expensive parking. With regard to the design, acquisition, everything in the Castle and the Park is just right and the visit is free of charge. How is that again? Oh, Yes: RWE is the owner. And you can tell at one point and therefore there is also point deductions: the exhibition for energy from lignite (on-site core business of RWE) dishonest hymn to the biggest labor in German industry mix is extremely biased,. You can apply also reflected their own position (domestic product, weather-independent supplier of energy, jobs, tradition of the open-cast mine). The former residents of the villages resettled for the mining must feel almost offended, who are represented in the exhibition with an example as happy pulling further, new modern green living profiteers. So the exhibition did not look appreciate (However, the toilets are there and at the end of the tour, the views of the tower is terrific... - well) and enjoy the walk in the Park. Determine who will be twenty meters in the green area running into it, also on a summer Sunday afternoon that the hustle and bustle of the inner courtyard (with outdoor gastronomy of the restaurant "Brasserie") runs quickly. At the edges of the garden, it is quiet, the most benches are unfilled, the way soft and bouncy, you may walk around everywhere - so beautiful. Great invested profits from dirty energy. Thank you, RWE, but no praise.

    The visit to the castle is interesting, traces the history of extraction of lignite, with many details, with antiques and newer, and ability to have brochures of the firm that currently gesticse extraction. The Park also offers botanical attractions, besides that of fossil plants, recovered during the excavations. The pond around the Castle, with its fish, offers an idyllic setting. A very nice restaurant completes the visit.

  • Lovely place to take a walk and have relaxing time. So close to nature. Also can listen to frogs singing.
  • A small castle with a garden/small park. Very pretty, very old.
  • This makes without a doubt the top 3 on my castles/palaces list of this region, and I've visited a lot around Köln... Beautiful and with free entrance, is well worth the visit!
  • Very pretty location with a nice cafe inside.
  • Prima Open Air!
