Knoppenburg Manor had a historical mention already in the 16th century under its original name "Hop op der Heyde" which means Court on the Heath. It has arisen from the restructuring of the old and significant Manor Belven from which it presumably split-off in the 16th century.
"Hop op der Heyde"
In 1612 Simon Bertholf bequeathed the property to Guillaume de Fischer as a gift. The family Fischer extended the building to include two side wings and two towers. The owners changed once more at the beginning of the 18th century and the estate belonged to the family Lamberts after 1717.
In the course of the Century Pierre-Ignace-Joseph de la Saulx, President of the District Court, Malmedy and later advisor at the Cologne Higher Regional Court acquired the estate through inheritance. The coats of arms of the family de la Saulx decorate the weathercocks on the towers of Knoppenburg Manor to this very day.
The main building made its debut in the classical style at the beginning of the 19th century, as can be seen today. Through marriage and inheritance, in the course of time the Manor became the property of the family de Blanchart.
In 1936 Joseph-Henri Guillaume van Laar purchased the estate. After the last change of ownership in 1998, extensive restoration and remedial work began.
Today, Kloppenburg Manor lies on the historical "Castle Trail" &endash; a fascinating route that links 20 palaces, castles and stately homes along 79km of the Belgian countryside
