Of the former castles on the northern edge of Blesssem, only the Outer Castle survived and is now known as the Blesssem Castle. The route of the drained moat refers to the original two-part complex, whose castle residence is located on a small island in the northeast outside the castle, now in the garden area. During the 2021 floods, ERFT flooded large swaths of the area due to heavy rainfall, and parts of the facility were washed away and slipped. Therefore, the castle now stands on the steep edge of the gravel pit. One attached part of the castle must be demolished, but the rest can be preserved.
