Photographer's Note

Arenfels Castle, the impressive landmark of Bad Hönningen, is set high above the town in the vineyards, visible even from afar.
It was built as a fortress Gerlach von Isenburg.In the 17th century it was turned into a Renaissance Gothic Ernst Friedrich Zwirner , the architect of Cologne Cathedral. In that same year it was acquired by the Count of Westerholt-Gysenberg.
Special features are a suspended column in the knights’ hall, a beautiful wrought – iron staircase and a magnificent marble fountain in the inner court. A peculiarity of the castle is the fact that it has 12 towers, 52 doors and 365 windows, hence the name "Jahresschloss” (year castle).
