Sint-Lambertuskerk

Maastricht, Netherlands

The Sint-Lambertuskerk was built between 1914 and 1916 and named after the Maastricht-born saint Lambert. At the time of its completion, it was the first church outside the old city wall. The church was designed by Hubert van Groenendael in neo-Romanesque style on a cruciform plan. The church was initially operated as a Roman Catholic parish church.

Soon after its completion in 1916, subsidence cracks developed in the structure. Ten years later, the church was restored and no further damage occurred until 1970. Beginning in 1970, portions of the structure began to sag and new cracks developed. Since 1985, the church has no longer been in use.

Unfortunately the church was closed and I was not able to enter, but the architecture is great and very impressive.

Esta iglesia es la primera construída fuera de la muralla. Eso se debe, en parte, a que es relativamente moderna, comparada con las otras, y se ubica en una parte más moderna de la ciudad. Fue construída alrededor de 1915, y su nombre se debe al santo Lamberto, nacido en esta ciudad. Hubert van Groenendael la diseñó en estilo neorrománico en una planta cruciforme. Es muy interesante de ver, aunque se encuentre algo alejada del centro histórico.

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.
