This is a classic castle, complete with a moat. The interior is mostly a museum about the castle history. It describes various changes of ownership and the relations between the owners and other local knights and the bishop of Muenster.

An excellent example of the moated castles built on the Munsterland plains. Ample free parking is available and the town is in easy walking distance. The fortifications are in good condition, this is not a ruin as so many German castles are.

Beautiful castle with an interesting exhibition about its history throughout the centuries. Learned some new facts about the Middle Ages. Exhibition setup is new and modern, everything is also written in English. The café serves a variety of cakes and there is a bakery which...More

This very old castle was modified several times over the centuries but is still in excellent shape. The self-guided tour includes several electronic displays that are quite engaging, including a very good 10-minute video of actors portraying a number of grievances that led to the...More

I went there for a quick look around. I ended up spending hours there. Excellent history and views. When I went, the castle portion was under repair, but the grounds and museum were excellent.

It is like going back in time...the burg is fascinating and is sorrounded by a nice park around a pool of water with many animals and some interesting vegetation. To walk in the Burg and in the park is really a pleasant way to relax...More

Nice old castle. Walk around is free. When I was there, there were maintenance activities and it was not possible to visit the castle inside. But the outside walk around was already great.

My family and I found this place by accident. It's off the beaten path a little but well worth the detour. The small Sloss is surrounded by two moats. I've never seen anything like it in all my travels. I'd recommend this stop over for...More
