Bike Touring Highlight
The water castle Haus Dellwig is, as soon as nature shows its green face, a worthwhile destination for walkers, hikers, walkers and cyclists alike. It offers itself as a station for tours through the surrounding areas Dellwiger forest, nature reserve Dellwiger Bachtal, Deipenbecke up to the district Bövinghausen. It is also worthwhile to visit one of the surprisingly numerous events organized by the Heimatverein and the local clubs. There is a parking lot on the road at the cam, so that an extended tour starting from the house Dellwig in the above areas is possible.

Dellwiger Bachtal is home to Wasserschloss Haus Dellwig. The Haus Dellwig is ideally suited to give cyclists a break at the pond.
- The house Dellwig is already mentioned in 1238 in connection with a knight of the name Heremanns de Dalewick (Hermann von Dellwig). After its destruction in the Thirty Years' War, the two-storey mansion was rebuilt between 1658 and 1690. Over time, it has been rebuilt several times, and so various architectural styles are visible in the building. 1727 died the last male descendant of the march knight family de Dalewick. Then the house goes through inheritance and sale by several hands. In the end, it was acquired in 1904 by Gelsenkirchener Bergwerks-AG. - (Wikipedia)

Definitely worth a trip. Gastronomy is not offered here, but great paths to go for a walk in the area. You can relax here.
In my opinion, there are already enough castles that have a gastronomy and more. I hope this well-preserved "gem" stays as it is.
The Wasserschloss Haus Dellwig in DortmundWasserschloss Haus Dellwig was first mentioned in 1197 as the ancestral seat of the von Dellwig family.
After several changes of ownership, Gelsenkirchener Bergwerks AG bought the moated castle in 1904, which was then acquired by the city of Dortmund in 1978.
Today the former knight's seat is leased to a farm whose owner also lives in the manor house. Therefore, a visit is unfortunately not possible. However, the three-winged outer bailey, which was probably built around 1700, can be entered.
The Lütgendortmund local history museum is housed in the left wing of the farm building. Among other things, you can see a kitchen from the turn of the century, grandma's living room from the 1930s and numerous agricultural and handicraft tools. The museum is only open on Sundays from 10.30am to 1pm between April and October.

The Dellwig house is a moated castle in the Lütgendortmund district of Dortmund. It was built by the von Dellwig family and was their ancestral home until 1727. After that, the facility was owned by various noble families and the Gelsenkirchener Bergwerks-AG before the building was bought by the city of Dortmund in 1978. After the Bodelschwingh house, the Dellwig house is the largest and most important moated castle in Dortmund and has been a listed building since 1997.
