Castle Satzvey is one of the most beautiful water castles of its region. The castle was first mentioned in a document in 1396, its foundation walls, however, are suspected to be even older. The castle has been family-owned for more than 300 years and is still main residence and head office of the family of the Counts Beissel von Gymnich.
Castle Satzvey is well known across state borders for its successful combination of monument preservation and presentation of living history. The family’s guiding principle is “preservation through entertainment“. Since the beginning of 2012, castle management has been passed on to the event agency Patricia Gräfin Beissel GmbH. Family orientated events, a diverse schedule and interesting presentations are highly important to Patricia Gräfin Beissel GmbH. It is the agency’s mission to present history and tradition in a fun way in order to make it appealing for the modern age.
