A little old and tired. My grandmother, my grandfather, has been baptized and camped in this church and is a member until my death. According to the Russian religion, the members of the congregation were named before Russia. So my grandmother and grandfather were named Valentina and Valeeri. Although they were Estonians. His grandfather fought on the German side in 1940 against the Russian forces, was lightly wounded and did not go to war again. They gave birth to 5 children, 4 boys and a girl. In 1991, his grandfather left after seeing the coming of Estonia and the blue-black-white dream he had dreamed of.

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.
