Only the vaults in the main nave and the entrance portal from the north (rectory) to the church are neo-gothic. .

The original church from 1282, expanded in the neo-Gothic style in the 17th century, then in 1893. Inside, rich furnishings from the 16th-19th centuries, including: the main altar in the late Baroque style from 1729, a Renaissance triptych from around 1600. Worth watching, available.

Very beautiful and old church. The first mention of it was in 1282. The church burned down twice and was rebuilt each time. The first fire was in 1449. The second time the Church was burnt down during the Thirty Years' War and by 1671 it was completely restored again.

Kakesbeck Castle

Kakesbeck is one of the largest medieval fortifications in Münsterland and the oldest castle in Lüdinghausen. The imposingly grown complex originated in 1120 as a motte, a small hilltop tower castle. After numerous changes of ownership, the castle was extended onto two islands, but it was not until the 14th century that it underwent significant alterations and extensions under the von Oer family. The estate experienced its heyday in the middle of the 18th century, when it covered an area of almost one square kilometre and consisted of five further outer castles in addition to the core castle, which were secured by ramparts and moats.

The well-maintained condition of the castle today is thanks to the late Wilfried Grewing, the former lord of the castle. The foundation named after him has been particularly committed to preserving the property since 2020.
