The Steiner Häuschen is the remnant of a medieval castle complex in Oberkassel, a district of the Bonn district of Beuel. The beginnings of the complex date back to the 10th century. The Counts of Molbach (Maubach) were the owners at the end of the 12th century. Before 1210, Countess Alveradis von Molbach donated the "Haistilberg" estate to the Cistercian abbey of Heisterbach. According to a report by Caesarius von Heisterbach, the tower of the complex was destroyed by lightning around 1217 and was not rebuilt.
