Built in 1352 by Renaud de Waimes, the castle was home to many a family, including the Nesselrode, the Nassau and finally the counts of Metternich, who were lords of the region for more than three centuries. It was destroyed during the French Revolution and entirely rebuilt in 1969, and is nowadays a living museum, where you can discover armours, collections of weapons and halberds, tapestries and furniture of the period.
