A very interesting place to know about sea, history of fishing! Huge collection of different things. The owner of this museum is a very charismatic man with a good sense of humour.

One of the most original maritime museums I've ever seen - a good portion of the boats hang in mid-air! Quality and presentation over quantity - imore museums around the world shoulf follow the same pattern!

This is a place where the museum owner really lives so, walking here, you can see some things actually used by him mixed with museum exhibits. At a glance, everything looks messy but, looking into details, you can see a lot of interesting things. It is better to ask the owner more.

Unique museum. The people do live there. So you are walking through their living room. Different items with maritime theme.

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.
