Nice place to picnic under the Himalayan cedars. Nice view over the roofs of the village. The rose garden requires an additional gardener!

The town hall park is very well maintained The flower beds are magnificent The rose garden is worth the detour and the vegetable garden is a good idea to supply schools

Nice place... Rose garden to visit. I put a 2 star for the wearing of the obligatory mask for the visit of the Museum of the leather and the tannery, in spite of the low attendance ... Too bad.

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.
