The view from the castle is magnificent! It was a bit hard to go up, but we have chosen the wrong way upwards. You have to turn right at the termal bath, it is more declivous route, than the other one. If you go straight further at the bath, the way up is muddy and steep.

Very high superelevation, but it is a beautiful trip. Takes about an hour to the top and an hour back.

Awesome view at the top. Nice hut with a boardgame inside. Tough hike tho. Very steep climb if you come from north side of the hill

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.
