The beautiful Hoensbroek Castle is one of the largest castles in the Netherlands. It served as the home for the House of Hoen for centuries.

The oldest parts of the castle date back to 1250. From that time until 1720, more buildings were added and the castle enlarged. In the 18th century, when the family moved to another place, the castle was left behind. For a long period it was uninhabited and parts of the castle collapsed.

In the 20th century the castle was purchased by a priest of Hoensbroek who had created the Ave Rex Christe foundation for the preservation of the buildings. Between 1930 and 1943, Hoensbroek Castle was restored by the National Trust. After having different functions the castle was rented out to the municipality of Heerlen and opened to public.
