Although it is a historic tower in the city with the restoration of the sheet that they have put on it, they have taken away the charm of the historical monument
Mauricio G.R. (3 years ago)
In this place a castle was built with a square tower, crowned with battlements where the remains of the machicolations still remain in its four corners and four walls, the main pointed access door and a large patio. It would be part of a medieval fortress of which only this watchtower would remain on the road from Arcos to Jerez.

Beautiful, although it is in very bad condition, it is a shame.
Fabiana Melgarejo (4 years ago)
It cannot be visited because it is in full restoration. Which seems necessary to me.
Antonio Garcia Prats (4 years ago)
It is a pity that it cannot be visited and is open to the public

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.
