Very beautiful church, not far from the center of Leeuwarden. The church is worth a visit as part of a visit to Leeuwarden. The façade and construction were very interesting. One of the most beautiful churches in the Northern Netherlands. There is a nice atmosphere here, impressively beautiful.

Stumbled into the church last Sunday and joined the communion service. Did not understand the Dutch language but enjoyed the experience. The congregation were very friendly as were the church officials. The interior of the church is as impressive as it is delightful. Well worth a visit.

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.
