HISTORY, SURROUNDINGS AND LOCATION
At a very strategic point, where the ridge "the Hanekraak" protrudes and between the Ur and the Meuse bend there was only little flat land left, lies the castle of Stein.
Originally a round donjon on an artificial hill or moth, the castle grew into a polygonal complex with an outer castle.
The latter part remained in use, the castle itself fell into a still impressive ruin.
On and around the grounds of the outer castle this special new building project La Basse Court has been realised.
Stein Castle is divided into two parts. On the one hand there is the ruins of the keep and the service buildings with their gates on the castle hill, on the other hand the now partly demolished buildings of the former mission house in the outer castle. The moat has a polygonal floor plan, which is defined by the retaining wall. Inside is the oldest residential tower, of which the basement in Maaskeien is thirteenth-century. In the fourteenth century the "white tower" was built on this base in marl, at the same time as the retaining wall.
Originally, the tower had a spire inside a trans standing tower. Now it is covered with a flat roof.
The Gothic profiled gate building and the connecting wings, based on marlstone walls, of the 60 x 40 metre large outer castle were built in the first instance in the seventeenth century, with changes from the eighteenth century.
Since 1922, several major renovations have been carried out here. On the south side, perpendicular to this wing, stands a country house from the period 1830-1840, which in terms of design is eighteenth-century.
Until recently, that house was accompanied by large extensions from the time of the mission house, which have now been replaced by new buildings with apartments.
Where the original wing is at right angles to the west, there is a depot for horses and carriages from around 1880, which has now also been converted into housing units.
The whole area is still surrounded by moats.
Now Stein, once a seigniory, has grown into a modern residential town and the municipality of that name, with around 27,000 inhabitants, also includes the cores of Elsloo, Urmond, Meers and Berg aan de Maas. In the recently completed shopping centre you will find a variety of shops and the multifunctional centre "De Grous". Stein also has a number of eateries including the cozy beer brewery "De Fontein" which is within walking distance. Oud Stein is picturesque. The marlstone tower of the St. Martinus Church dates from the fourteenth century.
Its location near important road connections and waterways has provided Stein with benefits for centuries and in the 21st century that is still the case.
