In 1345 our ancestors moved to the marshlands of Ippenburg to establish their family compound. Their clever marriage politics, social networking and a fine sense of power political contexts had led them to great prestige and wealth already since the 12th century. But it was only with a lot of good fortune, passion and this very special and magical atmosphere of this place, that the fortress was able to survive to see the 21st century.
