St. George's Collegiate Church

Tübingen, Germany

St. George's Collegiate Church is a late gothic structure built by Peter von Koblenz in 1470. The stained glass windows were designed by Peter Hemmel of Andlau. It is the central landmark and one of the first to convert to Martin Luther's protestant church. It maintains (and carefully defends) several 'Roman Catholic' features, such as patron saints.

This time we were unable to get into the cathedral. There was a rehearsal for the concert. In general, there is something to see there. Especially Egypt, where beautiful tombstones are collected.

Inside the church is a tower accessible for 1.5€. The view from the top is just wonderful. One can appreciate a captivating panorama of Tübingen. I would totally recommend.

This late gothic church from 1470 was one of the first churches to convert to Martin Luther's protestant churches. It houses a large amount of royal tonbs and has some stunning wood carvings on the benches. On top it, has the Schäufelein Altar, an altar from 1520 that was painted by an assistant of Hans Schäufelein who was a student of Albrecht Dürer, one of Germany's most famous painters.

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.
