Built
13th century

Lissingen Castle is a well-preserved former moated castle dating to the 13th century. From the outside it appears to be a single unit, but it is a double castle; an estate division in 1559 created the so-called lower castle and upper castle, which continue to have separate owners.
Together with Burresheim Castle and Castle Eltz, it has the distinction among castles in the Eifel of never having been destroyed.
