In 1921 D'Asprimont Lynden castle (Oud-Rekem) was a psychiatric hospital function. It was known as the "Empire Lunatic Asylum '. At that time psychiatric patients were excluded from society and kept for the rest of their lives in institutions like this. They had no family or their family had severed all ties with them.
