Ennsegg Castle

Enns, Austria

Ennsegg castle was built originally around the year 900. In the end of the 15th century it was so dilapidated that the Emperor Frederick III decided to build a new one. This imperial residence stood only for 100 years. Already in 1565 it was rebuilt again. The next expansion was made in the mid-1600s.

Todau Ennsegg castle has two courtyards separated by a longitudinal wing. In the arcades are Roman finds from Lauriacum (Lorch). The castle chapel dates back to the second half of the 17th century. It was installed in a defensive tower. It is richly decorated with stucco decoration. The altar was erected around 1800.

Beautiful place. ?

The castle park is not far from the main square in Enns. Even if the linden trees have not yet been cut this year, the complex is very well maintained and clean. The devices encourage movement and were used by families with children. Publicly accessible eg by bus to Enns Hauptplatz or Stadlgasse. Admission free.

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.
