In the Münsterland is the former seat of the Lords of Herbern - whose name still leads the nearby town - the castle Itlingen In the midst of a park landscape rises from the water of the surrounding forces an idyllic mixture of castle and castle, as it is in the guide over the Many water castles in the Münsterland are called. In the 18th century, the famous master builder Johann Conrad Schlaun gave the castle, which was already in use in the 14th century, the still existing horseshoe form, whose two wings are closed by round towers. The last of this family of the Lords of Herbern, according to the Chronicle, brought the castle to her husband, a Herr von Nagel, around 1540. Even today, the estate is owned by the family, namely by Hermann Freiherr von Nagel. In 1954, the entrepreneur Carl Fastenrath leased the Schlossgut Itlingen and began to build his kennel there under the code name stud farm Quenhorn.

Very nice castle worth seeing,
The lord of the castle kindly grants visitors free access to the castle courtyard and behind a very beautiful stable building.
To take a picture is enough. There is no access to toilets.
Access to the stables is understandably prohibited.
There is also no catering.
To look so really to recommend, but more is not.
