Due to the storm of July 14, 2021, the castle is not open to visitors until further notice.
The Rittersdorf Castle has remained almost unchanged since its construction and gives an impressive picture of late medieval and modern renaissance of interior design. The nearly 700 year-old water castle is located three kilometers north of Bitburg in Rittersdorf. It houses a small museum of local history and in the Gothic Knights' Hall, the registrar's office (branch) of the District Administration of the Bitburg region. In addition, it houses a privately owned restaurant with fine country cuisine. From an art history standpoint, the castle is particularly famous for its elaborately designed archway. At regular intervals, medieval banquets are held in the castle hall according to medieval tradition. After being welcomed by the Lord of the Castle and his servants, squires and maids in medieval costumes serve the food and drink. Minstrels, jesters and the authentically decked Knights Table contribute to the medieval atmosphere. Of course, you can enjoy a fine country cuisine and excellent wine in the stylishly-appointed rooms of the restaurant.
