Beautiful Aquinicum amphitheatre which was built around 145, during the reign of emperor Antoninus Pius. It's free to visit. I actually preferred this to the bigger ruins next to the Aquinicum museum.

Well overlooked sight in Budapest. Small snd open area that should be seen when in Budapest.

Ruins of a small military amphitheatre from Roman times. Visible at all hours, it is very close to the metro/suburban rail line to Szentendre

Its a provincial type of amphitheater and quite well preserved and a bit restored. Highly recommended. Spend some time there. Locals tend to take their dogs there, but its clean and thankfuly there is very little damage by grafittists, so thats great. Overall, site is completely unprotected, which is rather sad. Its free to 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.
