A fantastic place to spend the day with the little ones in an equipped park like few others in Salento, with a breathtaking view of the castle.

Nice castle from the outside only it was not possible to visit it because it was closed.

Beautiful, well-kept park, but closed castle not open to visitors

Nothing to complain about the beautiful town, so much to say about a little bar that with its ambiguous characters obscures the beautiful part of this place

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.
