Went there by bike. Unfortunately, it is a bit difficult to get up because the path was very gravelly, the impression was MEGA! And the fact that the castle is so freely accessible made the whole thing spectacular, of course. (Who needs Heidelberg :-D )

Very nice ruin that is partially worked on. Unfortunately, due to the danger of collapse, only a small part can be visited. On the rock spur is a beautiful place to dream. A castle festival takes place on the 2nd weekend in September. Updated 04/03/2022 Another part is visitable.

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.
