Fascinating place to visit. A wide variety of unique items at very reasonable prices. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We would definitely recommend a visit and will be back very soon.

What a wonderful place, loath to call it a shop as its really an artisans gallery. Crammed with unusual pieces, not overpriced, you get what you pay for here. Discovered they are on line, great gift ideas and ship internationally

It was a wonderful experience to find your shop in the middle of the evening of this Christmas holidays. First the location is beautiful, second your selection of items is amazing. I purchased 2 chess sets and 3 Christmas Jim Shore tree ornaments; I just love them all. My wide also found plenty to purchase, from art to jewelry.... too many presents opportunities there!! LOL!! Just to let you know, it was nice to set the 2 chess sets in our showcase shelves; I look forward to come back to Angers to get more!!! The owner is also a very entertaining sales person who knows how to discuss his products and patiently explains all the details we might want to know of. Furthermore, he took the trouble to fill in the tax refill forms for us and to explain its whole process upon returning at the airport. I just have to remember to own a lot of money to get there again, as I could just buy the whole shop!!! LOL!! :-D :-D :-D

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.
