History of Manor Farmhouse De Bockhof

De Bockhof is located in Haasdal, Schimmert, a very special South Limburgian village. Built on the site of two classical villas, the farmhouse’s street Billich, has been on the map since Roman times. From 1200 to the beginning of the 17th century, legend has it that the honourable family of Hafkesdale inhabited a fortified house on the site. The castle of Obbendorf, a majestic property that gave access to the kingdom of the Land of Valkenburg, is only mentioned centuries later. During the 17th and 18th centuries, the noble family Von Bock, from Aachen, owned the estate. Around 1677 the current architectural style was completed, with its characteristic square tower. Later on, its heritage became fragmented and the land was largely used for agricultural purposes. In 1959 the Stassen family from Groot Haasdal purchased and restored this national monument and in 2017, De Bockhof became a popular tourist destination.
