Satzvey Castle is a medieval fortress with water barriers. Its history began in the 12th century. The first stone buildings were erected in the late 14th century. After the next 100 years it was strengthened, and massive entrance gate appeared. In 1747, the castle was inherited by Karl Otto von Gymnich, representative of the noble family of the Rhine. During the war, the castle was severely damaged and subsequently rebuilt by Countess Adelina Metternich von Gymnich. A descendant of the ancient family, Franz Joseph Count Bayssel von Gymnich, lives in the castle nowadays.

A popular magazine for lovers of luxury included the castle in a list of seven most beautiful private estates in Germany. Most of its buildings are open for the public and private events.

Since 1981 different performances for children and adults have been regularly held in the castle and nearby: Christmas market, knightly tournaments, concerts, medieval detective shows, cooking shows, Easter Bazaar, St. Patrick's Day, summer theater with Peter Pan, so the main stream of tourists comes here on schedule. Funds from these activities are used to maintain the castle in good condition. The owners have no financial assistance from the state.

We arrived in the morning and nobody was there. So we freely entered the castle through the gate and watched the courtyard. Come early and you will be able to make such a wonderful picture.
