The Waffle Mill. Limited menu. They have 4 different menus, as well as ice cream, coffee, soft drinks, mineral water. Outdoor seating. There is only one outdoor seating area here, but it is comfortably situated on the lawn. Slugga is found during the morning, under two beautiful deciduous trees. In the afternoon there is no shade, then you can enjoy the sun and the heat. Handicap ramp. A disabled ramp is available

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.
