Sarka - The Finnish Museum of Agriculture

Loimaa, Finland

Sarka brings the versatile history of farming to you through moving image, sound, scale models and genuine objects. As an introduction to its collections, the Museum has an impressive scale model, which takes you through the development of the imaginary village of Sarkajoki from the Bronze Age to present. The basic collection builds on farm work associated with each season. Another dimension of the exhibition is time. It covers two main periods: the time before the post-war mechanisation of farming and the period after that until 2004.

This is a fun and interactive place for families to visit. It has a quest for kids, a buffet and lots of fun info. This museum tells about the old times how people loved in Finland. It has a outdoor exhibition which contains old buildings, old machines and even rabbits, chickens and sheep!

Nice museum about agriculture. Exhibitions about the history, old tools and tractors. Treasure hunt for the kids and a nice lunch/cafe place. Perfect for a rainy day.

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.
