The castle is still in a terrible condition. At least it's under the roof and it's slowly getting at least the facade. Otherwise nothing to see.

The castle is in poor condition, but it is worth visiting. The parking lot is at the castle.

Pokud je co jíst a co pít, je hezky.

All honor to the enthusiasts of the association, who are trying to at least stop the decay. Good luck. And the tour is very interesting, because it shows the castle (and the castle) differently than what Hluboká looks like.

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.
