All Saints Church

Nyköping, Sweden

All Saints (Alla Helgona) Church was built in the late 1200s, but during the Duke Karl's time (1590-1618) it went through a radical transformation. At the restoration in 1909 the church received its small ridge turrets, which is a replica of the tower on Erik Dahlberg´s engravings of Nyköping. In 1665 the church was ravaged by fire. At the recent restoration in 1959-1960 were the pillars restored in to original condition, limestone from the island of Öland.

Many birds adorn the church.

Nice church, cozy cemetery. Perfect place for everything from baptism to funeral.

The wingspan of history feels clear and thinks of all the centuries where parishioners listened to the word of the Lord in this very beautiful church, but a little hidden - despite its central location ... Definitely worth a visit. Dating back to the 13th century.

Extra exciting that there was a rune stone walled in the wall. Several interesting changes in the church, such as modern pillars and lamps.

Nice and historically interesting church that both feels grandly magnificent but at the same time quite intimate. Opposite the church is Prosten Pihls which has affordable coffee service in a wonderful historical environment weekdays between 13-15.30

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.
