Herdringen Castle was built in the XIX century designed by the architect of Cologne Cathedral, Ernst Friedrich Tsvirnera. The "English" look- unusual for Germany- was often used by German filmmakers to create foreign entourage. Two thrillers based on novels by Edgar Wallace - "Black Abbot" and "The Forger of London" were filmed in the castle in the 60-ies of the XX century.
The castle is still privately owned, but it can be viewed as part of guided tours by appointment. From time to time, Herdringen territory hosts concerts and other cultural events. The castle is surrounded by a beautiful park where you can easily find deer and other forest creatures. Since 1949 an open-air stage in the area has served the local theater club actors for staging their performances. Children's plays, attracting up to 800 spectators, enjoy particular success.
