Bedburg-Hau is a municipality in the district of Cleves in the state of North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany. It is located approximately 5 km south-east of Cleves.

One of its main attractions is Moyland Castle (Schloss), which belongs to a very well known family in Germany. The owners do not reside in the castle, and it contains a museum of modern art. After years of struggle and hard work to complete the reconstruction of Moyland Schloss, the big event took place on July 17, 2007, when the last piece was carefully placed on the tip of the main tower. People from all over the world were there to admire such an important moment in Moyland's history.
