Kalkum Castle is located in the district of the same name, in Dusseldorf.
The property was first mentioned in documents dating back to 309. In the documents of 852, it is said that Arnulf of Carinth, ruler of the East Frankish kingdom, granted the canon of the church in Harz all the real estate in the Kaliheim area (Calcum), consisting of a forest, a manor's yard with a mill and a church. Subsequently, the manor's courtyard was transformed into a palace. In 1176, the Calcum family is mentioned as the owners of the estate of the same name.
In the 16th century, the noble family of Winkelhausen became the owners of the castle. The old castle had by that time been demolished and replaced by a more modern palace.
