A small but very nice museum. Here you can find objects from the Stone Age to the Iron Age.

A nice and sympathetic museum. A bit small, but considering that it's free entry and that it's a small city like Enköping, it's perfectly fine. Fairly large actually. It's nice to go to the museum and you really get a clear picture of what Enköping looked like in the 1800s and early 1900s. Some things were completely new to me like this thing about government workers that I had never heard of before and it was cool to see how cramped and small people in the 19th century lived. It takes between 25-40 minutes to see the museum. The museum is centrally located, in the center of Enköping in a beautiful classical two-storey building. It is free to enter. Downstairs there is a tourist information office. And a small museum shop with a very limited range of souvenirs. The museum is open until 4 pm Tuesday to Friday.

Free entry, clear advantage, wouldn't have paid for the museum if it cost money. Although there is an elevator in the 3-story museum, I do not recommend wheelchair users to come

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.
