Prümer Burg Castle

Prümer Burg Castle

Prümzurlay

Above the village of Prümzurlay, on a steeply sloping sandstone cliff, lie the ruins of Prümerburg Castle, already referred to as the "ancient castle of Layen" in the 9th century. Its first documented mention can be found in a feudal contract from 1337. In 1658, the castle was burnt down during the Franco-Dutch War and was never rebuilt.

Today, the path to the castle ruins leads over the moat that used to secure the eastern side. The castle's pentagonal defence tower dates back to the 12th and early 13th centuries. If you climb to the top, you will be rewarded with a fantastic view over the Prüm valley. The southern gable wall of the residential part, the palas, is still preserved. To the right and left of the window openings, you can still see the seats from which you could look down. The vaulted cellar is also still accessible via a staircase.
