    "How enthralled she stands there, the Wasserburg Hopen, surrounded by a moat, old oaks and beeches in the middle of the Hopener Stadtwald.

    In recent centuries, one of the most important architectural monuments of the town of Lohne has undergone an eventful and exciting history. It was built in 1517 by Count Herbord von Dinklage. In 1637, soldiers of the Swedes and Hesse, who besieged the Vechta, burnt down the buildings of the outer bailey, and it was not until 1780 that the two-storey massive manor house was expanded and extended. At that time, until the 17th century, the castle also had a tower and a drawbridge, which collapsed or collapsed around 1825 and around 1880. "

    The Hopener forest is always worth a bike tour, beautiful trails that are easily accessible by bike. The Burgstraße has now become a bicycle road, where bicycles have absolute priority. For families with small children it is worthwhile to cycle there, a trip to the forest playground is a must with small children
