    Bad Iburg, located near Osnabrück, is not only known for its Kneipp spa, but also for the Iburg castle and monastery. They are among the historically significant construction sites in the Osnabrück district in Lower Saxony. The Iburg was originally built in 1070 in the form of a castle with a wooden chapel on a hill in the center of the city. Today classical concerts take place regularly in the knight's hall and you can visit the museum every day except Mondays and Sundays.

    Opening times of the castle museum:
    Tuesday to Saturday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

    The "castle tour" can be well connected with one of the beautiful forest trails and / or the treetop path, as everything is in close proximity to each other. The castle Bad Iburg is beautiful and especially the monastery wing also proves courage to color 😃.

    Bad Iburg Castle is always worth a short visit. Since almost nothing is now publicly accessible, you should choose a date for the visit on which one of the regular castle tours takes place. So you get a nice insight into the historical building.
    For my part, I had the privilege of going to school at the castle for a few years, at a time when you could still move around almost freely ... yes, that was a long time ago ...

    Under the seven judicial linden trees, the Iburger Gogericht has demonstrably come together on Dingplatz since 1225 as a so-called “bidding thing”. It was a court yard where criminals were sentenced to death. A memorial plaque still reminds of this today.

    The castle is beautiful and offers from the Ulmenhof a great view of the LAGA area / Charlottensee / Kneippark. Access to the Ulmenhof and the Passhof is only possible until 18:00. Then the gate is closed.

    The castle is worth a visit / detour. From the Ulmenhof you have a great view over the Kneippark or the current LAGA area. Access to the elm and pass yard is only possible until 18:00.

    Random Fact: In the year after the seizure of power by the National Socialists in 1934 a SA sports school of the NSDAP was founded in the castle, which existed until 1939.

    In 1932 and 1933, the Charlottensee was created at the foot of the Schlossberg. The initiator was the Iburger Kurverein, which was founded in 1932 at the suggestion of the later honorary citizen Robert Hülsemann.

    Iburg Castle and Monastery in Bad Iburg are among the historically significant buildings in the Osnabrück district in Lower Saxony.

    The Iburg was built in 1070 on a hill as a castle with a wooden chapel, the Benedictine monastery in it was founded in 1080. From the 11th to the end of the 17th century, the bishops of Osnabrück resided in the double complex of palace and monastery. The knight's hall from the 17th century is noteworthy in terms of art history because of its ceiling painting in a pseudo-perspective architecture. Iburg is the oldest knight's castle and, besides the Holter Castle, the only mountain castle in the diocese.

    The knot garden emerged as an element of Italian gardens in the Renaissance. Knot ornaments, braided and checkerboard patterns were typical of the beds. The planted patterns resemble garden labyrinths with low borders. In contrast, mazes are to be classified as an independent element of garden art. Knot gardens are predominantly found in the UK today.

    On the south side of the Schlossberg, the knot garden from the 16th century was reconstructed in 2013. Trees were felled for the 3,500 square meter garden and paths to the palace and Charlottensee were newly laid out. The knot garden, formed from strands of boxwood, is framed by sandstone walls and benches. A promenade made of rose arches forms a cross connection to the castle mill.

    The Schlosswiese, laid out as a sports field by students from the Lower Saxon Home School Iburg after the end of the Second World War, was added to the spa park on the Charlottensee and redesigned. The plant turned out to be more difficult than expected because pollutants were found on the area of the former cinder track.

    The northern slope of the Schlossberg is also to be redesigned. [10]

    Great view from Schossberg to Bad Iburg, a tour around the Schlossberg with a visit to the spa park is also worthwhile!
