During the year several markets take place around Wittringen Castle. Art in the Castle, Wittringer Gartentage, Art at the Castle, Fairytale Christmas and Star Shine. All very well worth seeing.
The castle and the castle park, as well as the restaurant with outdoor management always invites you to visit. The Werwolfwanderweg, which is based on true events, also passes here. 10 KM is the route connecting Bedburg and Alt-Kaster.
The ruins Hohensyburg is definitely worth a visit. As a hiker I enjoyed the view over Hagen and the Hengsteysee. As a contrast, the casino is not far away. I've already found my luck while enjoying the great view.
