Mountain Biking Highlight
The medieval castle Loersfeld lies in the midst of an approximately 10-acre English landscape park and is one of the most beautiful plants in Germany. Already in 1262, the possession of the Lords of Loersfeld was mentioned in documents, which probably already existed at this point before a court. The present castle was built mainly towards the end of the 15th and in the 16th century, was spared in the numerous wars of the Middle Ages and the early modern period of destruction and has since been preserved almost unchanged. Lock Loersfeld is thus one of the few facilities still visible today that reveal the development from the wooden tower of the early castles to the stone defense tower. Since 1819, the castle is owned by the barons of Fürstenberg, who made various additions and conversions to the plant. The Second World War and the strong groundwater subsidence caused by the surrounding opencast lignite mine left severe damage to the building fabric. After the settlements were halted by the lowering of the groundwater, the castle was extensively renovated from 1990 to 1992 by the Bellefontaine family, which has been a tenant since the early 1960s (with the support of the owner of the castle).
Today, Thomas Bellefontaine runs a gourmet restaurant in the mansion.The property is ideal for family events, car presentations, filming, seminars and exhibitions.
