Of the former castle on the northern outskirts of Blessem, only the outer bailey has been preserved, which is now called Blessem Castle. The course of the drained moats refers to the original two-part complex, whose castle house was located on an island northeast of the outer bailey on today's garden grounds. In the course of the flood disaster in 2021, in which the Erft flooded large areas of the region as a result of heavy rainfall, parts of the plant were undermined and slipped. Thus, the castle now stands on a steep edge to the gravel pit. An extension of the castle must be demolished, but the rest can be preserved.
