Bruggen Castle is a water castle in the southeastern part of the Lower Rhine municipality of Bruggen. It was the most important castle in the north of the Duchy of Julich.
The castle was built in the 13th century to guard a ford over the River Schwalm. In the early 14th century it went into the possession of the dukes of Julich, who had the existing building replaced by a quadrangular castle made from brick. Today part of the castle houses a museum.
