Burg Hülshoff is a typical Münsterland moated castle, which was first mentioned in the 11th century. Her name is very likely derived from the noble ministerial family Hüls (Hulse) zu Kleve, the alleged builders of the castle, who descended from the counts of Tecklenburg.  It lies between Havixbeck and the Roxel suburb of Münster and has been part of the Havixbeck municipality since 1975. The castle was owned by the barons Droste zu Hülshoff from 1417 to 2012 and is the birthplace and parental home of the poet Annette von Droste-Hülshoff and other prominent members of her family.
