Hugenpoet Castle belongs to the von Fürstenberg family. In 778, the lands around the castle formed part of the manorial domain of Charlemagne. In 1308, the Barons von Nesselrode built a castle here to protect their interests. The present castle dates from 1650. The von Fürstenbergs acquired the castle at the beginning of the 19th century and today it is a luxury hotel.
