Aspelt Castle was originally a low medieval castle, with four towers, a drawbridge and a portcullis, which was later transformed into a Baroque castle, the oldest parts of which date as far back as 1590. It is assumed that a castle, built on Roman ruins, existed before 1100. Currently, the renovations of the castle are in the final phase and the renovated building will be presented to the public in 2020.

The House of History and Remembrance of the Linster-Weydert Foundation touches on its origin of arte facts and data and aims at national and general achievements. The farmhouse housing the Foundation was built in the middle of a site, which has been inhabited for over 35,000 years by humans. To the surprise of archaeologists, characteristic objects testify to the presence of a population of Neanderthals. The 37,441 artefacts collected patiently by Aloyse Linster show that after the Neanderthals, Homo Sapiens in the Stone Age had established itself, followed by a Gallo-Roman population. Recent research suggests that a Gallo-Roman site was located in the place of the current farm. More recently, it should be noted that during the Second World War the Linster hosted and protected eleven refractory Nazi military services.
