Wonderful Castle. With respect to the current owner and privacy it would be wonderful idea having small portion of the magnificent building dedicated to tourists. We do exhibit Imperial Sterling Silver, Bavarian, Hungarian fine China and art work including jewelry @ B+B at Sunbury Cove Winery CA

The castle is a private ground not accessible for tourists today. It has an interesting history and hopefully bright future as it looks nice from outside and has a good location near Thaya river. Unfortunately, there is not much around that may attract attention of bypassers.

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.
