Church of St. John the Baptist

Malbork, Poland

St. John the Baptist has been located around Malbork since at least the 13th century, having been destroyed and rebuilt on several occasions. The current building was like so many other old ones in the town rebuilt at the end of the Thirteen Year War in 1468, although the current wooden bell tower dates from the 1520s. Always a Catholic church, the interior, most of which dates from extensive conservation work between the wars, is rather plain. Outstanding features include a medieval sculpture of St. Elizabeth of Turin and the neo-Gothic altar.

Every time we go to the seaside, we go to this church on Sundays. Of course, positive changes are visible. The sermon is informative and the analysis of the gospel is perfect. There is a need to pray in this place.

Very Nice Church. Beautiful Sunday Masses. Yes, not on the topic yet, delicious ice cream in the booth next to the church ???

I do not recommend. Confirmation was held on June 18. The treasurer of this parish came down from the altar and asked the mother with her one-year-old child to leave the church because a toy fell out of the child's hand and onto the floor. He made her stand in the vestibule. Embarrassing

As they say, a church with a soul. A monument worth entering to see who wants to pray. Currently, the vaults are being renovated

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.
