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.
2. Haus Amstenrath
The Haus Amstenrath, also called Amstenrather Haus, Kleines Haus and Reuschenberger Haus or simply Herrenhaus, is a moated castle in Eynatten, a district of the municipality of Raeren in the German-speaking part of Belgium. Built by a member of the von Eynatten family, it passed through an heiress first to the von Reuschenberg family, then to the von Harff family, before the property passed to Arnold Huyn von Amstenrath in 1647. 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.
The Aachen Landgraben is the name given to the fortifications along the almost 70 km long border of the former Aachen Empire. Individual sections can already be documented for the 14th and 15th centuries, but it was not until the beginning of the 17th century that the construction of the Landwehr was completed and contractually legitimized on 11 April 1611 by Albrecht VII von Habsburg, the acting regent of the Spanish Netherlands in Brussels, with the aldermen and the city council in Aachen.
