The castle Cappenberg is a former monastery, which was closed in the context of the Prussian secularization. Later, Minister of State Freiherr von Stein bought the large estate and saved it from decay. Meanwhile, it belongs to one of his descendants and there are numerous different exhibitions in the large buildings. At the moment, it will probably be redeveloped until autumn 2018.
The collegiate church is still open and all Jakob pilgrims receive a stamp. The church is open from Tuesday to Friday from 9:00 to 12:00.
