Guttenberg Castle

Haßmersheim, Germany

One of the few intact medieval castle complexes from the Stauffer period lies high above the romantic Neckar River valley surrounded by vineyards and endless forests. The Guttenberg castle has been in the possession of the barons of Gemmimgen-Guttenberg since 1449. The castle was never destroyed. The complex includes, among others, a local history museum 'Life in a Knight´s Castle'.

Amazing! Totally surprised! Found it by chance! Great location! Beautiful view to the Neckar Valley! We were here for cake & coffee, but I think we will come back for lunch or dinner! Total friendly and helpful team! If you come to the right time it is possible to enjoy your delights and watching the big birds of the Falknerei flying on the same height as the windows (eye-level) what an experience! And the food in the Restaurant sounds and looks great! What shall I say, just try, but bring enough time....

I visited Burg Gutenberg while it was closed because of the COVID. Although I couldn't get into it, I liked its atmosphere, and I'll be back when the pandemic is over.

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.
