We welcome you at castle Ehreshoven. Here, you will find a succeeded connection of nature and human being. Here, you will literally come into contact with the components of sustainable, future-orientated entrepreneurship in form of lived, economic, ecologic, and social responsibility in a “value-microcosm”.

Whether during an Outdoor-Event in the rustic barn at Gut Forkscheid or in the course of a Gala dinner at the baroque castle – in a private and therefore particularly aesthetic environment you will experience the values of respect and appreciation in a completely new way. You can witness the unique interaction of social commitment, respectful contact with nature and responsible and identity creating actions.


In our modern seminar house ECOLUT-Center you feel the concept of sustainability. The name is already based on the Latin word for “mud” (Luti) and at the same time bears ecological and economical (Eco) thinking. We actively accompany you during a journey through a world in which sustainable economy and social responsibility coalesce in a very special way. This coalescence is not only symbolized through the 1.500 ha large forest of Ehreshoven with its sustainable cultivation and truly economic responsibility, but also by the castle with its ladies foundation, where old ladies live together according to traditional and religious rules under the leadership of an abbess.

We would be glad to show you the necessary degrees of skilled craftsmanship and financial power to preserve a castle for future generations.
