Tips

  • Michael

    If you're in the area or the route passes by, you can take a look at the castle from the car park and the street to see it, but it's a worthwhile destination. The castle is inhabited and privately owned, so not to be visited and forbidden to enter, except for events. A complete tour and visit from the outside is also not possible. We like to use as a casserole point from the back through the fields, if the group has pulled apart before it goes on the road again.

    The castle is first mentioned in documents in 1266. The plant originally consisted of four wings. The fortified gatehouse is the oldest part of the complex, the chapel dates back to 1332 (demolition 1941). The castle in the style of the late Renaissance dates from the years of reconstruction from 1530 to 1584 and is inhabited. Since the castle is privately owned, there are no guided tours or visits.

    Wasserschloss Bladenhorst dates from the 16th century. The water castle blends harmoniously into the landscape and the eye enjoys this old castle complex.
    The environment is excellent for hiking and exploring. Not far from the moated castle is the Rhine Herne canal.

    As an intermediate destination, for example to the ship lift Henrichenburg, Bladenhorst is perhaps suitable. But, as hinted at in the text, it is dismissive to visitors. There is also no restaurant around it.

    Bladenhorst Castle is located in the middle of a large green belt and invites you to pause. However, the castle is privately owned and can only be admired from the outside!

    The castle was first mentioned in a document in 1266 and is located in the quarry landscape of the Emscherland between the waters of the Emscher, Deininghauser Bach and Salzbach. The Knights of Blarnhurst once lived there, followed by the von Düngelen family at the beginning of the 14th century. In 1338 Rötger von Düngelen made his property available to the Count of Kleve as Offenburg for use in the event of war. By marriage, the castle came to Philipp von Viermundt († 1528) in 1496, and from 1624 to 1881 to the barons of Romberg, who had inherited it. Afterwards the barons Weichs zur Wenne and the Klöckner-Werke were responsible for the fortunes of the castle.
    The system originally consisted of four wings. The gatehouse, built as a fortification, is the oldest part of the complex, the chapel dates back to 1332 (demolished in 1941). The late Renaissance style castle dates from the years of renovation from 1530 to 1584 and is inhabited. Since the castle is privately owned, there are no tours or visits.
    On February 16, 2006, Sparkasse Vest became the owner of the castle. After she had administered it for four years, she bought it at auction. Part of the north wing has consisted of owner-occupied apartments since 2001, the remaining part of the palace passed into the possession of a private person from Dortmund in January 2007.

    It's actually not worth it, because the castle is private property and cannot be entered. So just a look from the outside - but it's beautiful ...

    The best view of the castle is in winter, when the trees are without leaves.

    Nice to look at from the outside, old moated castle. However, it is not possible to get in - private property.
