Schloss Dyck

Eng­lish in­spir­a­tion sur­roun­ded by wa­ter

The park, with its old trees, still looks just as it did in the 19th cen­tury. At the same time, as an in­ter­na­tion­al centre for garden art, Schloss Dyck’s latest de­vel­op­ments have a lot to of­fer.

Schloss Dyck in Jüchen, Lower Rhine, is one of the most cul­tur­ally and his­tor­ic­ally im­port­ant moated castles in North Rhine-West­phalia. The castle is set with­in an Eng­lish land­scaped garden. With out­er baileys and courts, it is spread over four is­lands in the Kelzen­ber­ger Bach. The castle has been owned by the princely Salm-Re­if­fer­scheidt-Dyck fam­ily since the 14th cen­tury. The princes re­placed the castle’s Baroque garden with the cur­rent Eng­lish-in­spired castle park in 1794. Nu­mer­ous renowned land­scape ar­chi­tects and garden de­sign­ers helped to shape the park, in­clud­ing Thomas Blaikie and Peter Joseph Len­né.

Today’s Centre for Garden Art and Land­scape Design

In 1999 Schloss Dyck be­came an in­ter­na­tion­al centre for garden art and land­scape design. The grounds cap­tiv­ate with their themed and mod­el gar­dens, av­en­ues, wooded paths and mead­ows with an old tree pop­u­la­tion. Oth­er im­press­ive fea­tures are the shrub gar­dens with aza­leas and rhodo­den­drons, the flower­beds, the vari­ety of trees and the flower­ing mead­ows dur­ing the sum­mer months. The Schloss Dyck grounds are some of the old­est and most di­verse in Ger­many. The Schlosspark (Castle Park) also con­tains a high-rope course for climb­ing fans. The spe­cial at­mo­sphere ex­uded by the castle also draws thou­sands of vis­it­ors a year to sea­son­al events and mar­kets. High­lights in­clude the il­lu­mina, a fest­iv­al of lights that bathes the castle park in a ma­gic­al light at dusk.

Open­ing hours:
Park and castle are open year round, ex­cept on 24, 25 and 31 Decem­ber
