Hudiksvall, Sweden

Hudiksvall Church, built in 1643-1672, is the oldest survived building in the city. Hudiksvall has been damaged by fires some 10 times, the most severe when it was burnt by the Russians in 1721, whereafter only the church remained. There are still traces of Russian cannonball hits in church walls.

Very nice church and talented musicians and inspiring priests! Tuesdays at 12:00 they have communion service when you can have peace with God and yourself and be washed clean from sin and shame. :)

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.
