Bužim Castle was built during the 12th century, and is located at 325 metres above sea level. It was the second-biggest medieval castle in Cazinska krajina, after Bihać. The castle is an example of renaissance architecture, and served as both a military hill fort and a residence for the nobility. Bužim Castle and a nearby old mosque are protected as national monuments in Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Once the home to a Croatian Noble Family to a great Monument of History of Krajina! It has amazing views and History is very much preserved here, as the Old Mosque, Renovated Tower, and even the underground passages. Sadly, parts of the lower and upper fort are covered in graffiti, Nonkept Grass, and trash. I will appreciate if the municipality keeps an eye for this great Symbol of not only Buzim but the entire Region of Bosanska Krajina. Would visit if passing by!

Dominant position over Bužim. Very old, but pourly maintained. Recommend to visit.

The view from up there is beautiful but the castle itself is not secured and on windy days dangerous.

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.
