A nice church with a beautiful cemetery

Another church that, to my disappointment, was closed. I can understand that it can be difficult to always be open, but there should be information about possible opening hours. The cemetery was well maintained and there was a sense of calm when you walked there. Will see if the church is open next time I come here.

Unfortunately the church was closed. But I think the church was very nice and the architecture was very nice. The cemetery was, in my opinion, very well maintained and around the graves and tombstones there was generally order. Hope to come back on occasion when Västerhaninge church is open for visitors.

The older church in Haninge pastorate, where the staff is very nice. Very beautiful concerts are played here, the services are also very nice and I highly recommend visiting the church either for a service or another activity.

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.
