You do see here the restored keep (donjon) and part of the remaining wall.
The building did start in 1177 by Wilhelm II.
The keep is the oldest part of the castle and was built between 1177 and 1190. The tower was enlarged in height to six storeys. On the ground floor you can find the chapel right next to the dungeon. The other storeys contain two rooms each. Besides the residential purposes those rooms were used as pantry and soldiers’ rooms.
Burg Nideggen is the town’s landmark of Nideggen, rural district of Dueren, Eifel, Germany.
