Moyland Castle is a moated castle in Bedburg-Hau in the district of Kleve, one of the most important neo-Gothic buildings in North Rhine-Westphalia. Its name derives from the Dutch word Moiland which means “beautiful country”. The name was probably coined by Dutch workers, which the former owner Jacob van den Eger of the Lower Rhine had brought to his property to drain the surrounding wetlands.

Today it houses a Moyland Museum containing an extensive collection of modern art of the brothers van der Grinten and is a popular destination on the Lower Rhine.[1][2][3]
