Impressive cathedral for such a small town! With the bikes on tour, the large cathedral dominates the landscape from afar! Small coffees and restaurants around the cathedral, also very nice in the area! The cathedral is very beautiful from the inside, especially the windows, which were most likely not destroyed by the war, so true to detail and beautiful, especially in the sunlight, were lucky impressive! Taking a break outside in the shade kestrels also inhabit the top of the tower and circled around! Greetings from Moers

As is so often the case: as impressive as it is from the outside, it is so simple on the inside. The cherry windows are beautiful.

The Propsteikirche St. Ludgerus, also called Ludgerus-Dom, is a Catholic pilgrimage church in the town of Billerbeck in the Diocese of Münster and one of the two churches of the provost St. Johannes and St. Ludgerus parish and community. It is a neo-gothic floor plan with a transept. It's a wonderful cathedral.?

The very impressive and historical Catholic Pilgrimage Church in Billerbeck- Münsterland. The two towers are visible from afar that you won’t miss your way as a landmark. The original architecture which was Gothic style to neo-Gothic was changed after renovations. It has a style of medieval Gothic. There’s a small quiet chapel within the Church with the relics of St. Ludgerus embedded in Carrara marble and illuminated. The stained window glazing is work of a genius. This Dom was built in honor of St. Bishop Liudger, his relics is the main goal of Pilgrims. There are hotels and restaurants, banks, shops in this small quiet city. Your time is worthwhile a visit here, I highly recommend.

Château du Haut-Koenigsbourg

The Château du Haut-Koenigsbourg is situated in a strategic area on a rocky spur overlooking the Upper Rhine Plain, it was used by successive powers from the Middle Ages until the Thirty Years' War when it was abandoned. From 1900 to 1908 it was rebuilt at the behest of the German kaiser Wilhelm II. Today it is a major tourist site, attracting more than 500,000 visitors a year.

The first records of a castle built by the Hohenstaufens date back to 1147. The fortress changed its name to Koenigsburg (royal castle) around 1157. The castle was handed over to the Tiersteins by the Habsburgs following its destruction in 1462. They rebuilt and enlarged it, installing a defensive system designed to withstand artillery fire.

The fortification work accomplished over the 15th century did not suffice to keep the Swedish artillery at bay during the Thirty Years War, and the defences were overrun.
