Meetings, celebrations and overnight stays in historical locations
Discover Schloss Wissen
Confer, Celebrate and Spend the Night in Historic Buildings
Schloss Wissen, the ancestral home of the family von Loë is one of the most well-known noble seats on the Lower Rhine. The extensive castle complex looks back on a century old history which began in the 12. / 13. century with the erection of a defence tower (presently the south wing of the main building). During the course of the centuries, a three-winged outer bailey was added to the main building and continuously adapted to the tastes of the respective times.
Schloss Wissen owes its current form to a comprehensive restoration executed from 1969 to 1973. Some of the generously and elaborately restored venues such as the White Salon and the Large Dining Room can, today, be utilised for conferences, as well as for weddings, company celebrations, family ceremonies or team events. The Historic Watermill is located in front of the gates of the castle. The Watermill disposes of two seminar rooms which can, if necessary, be combined to form one large conference venue / ballroom for up to 80 persons. The view of the surrounding green landscape and of the outer bailey imparts the Historic Watermill with additional charm.
Some of the buildings of the servants’ quarters, which also form part of the castle complex, were transformed into guesthouses with lovingly decorated rooms and apartments in which special holidays can be spent. The guestrooms carry the names of von Loë family members, whose stories are closely linked to this place, as a reminder of the castle’s historical past.
Furthermore, you will find the Princess Tower on the outskirts of the Boye. A princess never lived in the tower and yet it bears her name – “very thrilling”!
Moated castle, rich in tradition and situated in picturesque surroundings
At Schloss Wissen, visitors can immerse themselves in the rich history of the moated castle – every building and every room tell their own story. Come and see for yourself!
With its beautiful guestrooms and picturesque surroundings, the castle simply invites you to spend a relaxed holiday on the Lower Rhine with a choice of leisurely outings. In this way, you can discover the beauty of the region either on a bicycle or by boat on the Niers.
