    A small museum, lovingly maintained by the Heimatverein, invites you to visit, and the inner courtyard of Haus Dellwig is also ideal for a hiking break.

    I recommend a visit in late April in early May, when the magnolia of 1860 blooms in the park behind the moated castle!

    The Dellwig House is a moated castle in the Lütgendortmund district of Dortmund. It was built by the von Dellwig family and was their headquarters until 1727. The complex was then owned by various noble families and the Gelsenkirchener Bergwerks-AG, before the buildings were bought by the city of Dortmund in 1978

    Very nice house. Unfortunately, you can only marvel from the outside as far as I know. There are huge beeches, an ancient plane tree and a beautiful magnolia nearby. Trees were probably all planted around 1830.

    The museum is unfortunately closed due to the pandemic, but a tour around the pretty moated castle and its park with over 150 years of trees and a beautiful magnolia is absolutely worthwhile.

    A pretty little moated castle, which you wouldn't expect in the big city of Dortmund. All around an extensive forest area with 100-year-old beeches.
