    The "Westphalian Versailles", as the castle Nordkirchen is also called, was commissioned by Prince-Bishop Friedrich Christian von Plettenberg. Gottfried Laurenz Pictorius began construction, Johann Conrad Schlaun completed the baroque moated castle after 30 years.
    It is located on an island surrounded by quadrangular trees, in the middle of a large park, which, like the castle, was built on the French model. The focal point of the imposing Nordkirchen Castle is the main building, the Corps de Logis, from which the lower wing buildings develop and enclose the court of honor in a U-shape. The entire building complex is highly symmetrical and in this form an impressive example of a completely preserved Baroque complex.

    Nordkirchen Castle is one of the most beautiful castles in North Rhine-Westphalia, which not only has the most visitors for this reason.
      A very good run restaurant inside and a nice outdoor terrace but also the well maintained park are reason for that.
        If you take the time for a guided tour, you will not regret it.

    It is not for nothing that the castle Nordkirchen is called the Versailles of Westphalia. The castle made of red clinker is embedded in a baroque park, with many statues, boxwood hedges and various water features.
    Guided tours of the castle are offered, but in the week resides the College of Finance of the State of North Rhine-Westphalia in the walls.
    In the courtyard there is a café, at an information you can buy postcards and an information booklet. In addition, there is the possibility to be trusted in the rooms of the castle, the registry office Nordkirchen has a branch here.

    The Nordkirchen Castle is a baroque palace complex in the south of Münsterland and is located a good 25 kilometers from Münster in the area of the municipality of Nordkirchen in the North Rhine-Westphalian district of Coesfeld. The listed moated castle is the largest and most important baroque residence in Westphalia and is also known as the "Westphalian Versailles" due to its size and architectural design.
