1. Vlattenhaus

Show sight on map

The Vlattenhaus, also known as Großes Haus and Schenkenhaus, is a moated castle in the district of Eynatten in the Belgian municipality of Raeren. It probably emerged from an estate of Eynatten Castle, which was expanded into a fortified residential tower in the 15th century and was a Limburg fief. From the von Eynatten family, the castle passed through the Thoreils in the second half of the 15th century to the von Vlatten family, who remained owners until the beginning of the 18th century. Subsequently, it belonged to the Hanotte family, who donated it to the Aachen Jesuit College in 1728. The Order had a new house built in 1761, the remains of which are still preserved today. After the dissolution of the Order in 1773, the Brabant domain administration sold the complex to a private individual. Heavily damaged by bombs during the Second World War, the house was a ruin for a long time before it was converted into a residential building in the 1990s. It is not open to the public.

He had a new castle built, which changed hands again and again through other heiresses before the von Franssen zu Cortenbach family became the owner in 1817. Haus Amstenrath still belongs to their descendants today.
