    The outer bailey (from Hardenberg Castle) is a three-winged building complex in the shape of a horseshoe, as is often found in Rhenish water castles. The two-storey buildings made of plastered quarry stone and half-timbered houses once housed stables and the administration of the Hardenberg Office. Wall anchors in the form of dates testify to the years of construction: 1680 and 1693. However, dendrochronological studies have shown that the southern central building of the outer bailey was not built until around 1720/30, and a central wall was only built between 1734 and 1744. At the two southern corners, preserved foundations testify that two round towers once stood there. These were probably put down in the 19th century.
    Some of the events that previously took place in the castle could be relocated to the renovated west wing of the outer bailey. There is a studio stage with up to 150 seats, which is operated by the Velbert culture and event company. In addition to cabaret and cabaret, plays from children's and youth theater are performed there. In addition, the outer bailey serves as a regular venue for concerts. In addition, there is the possibility of renting rooms in the outer bailey for company events and private parties. The former commercial wing is a particularly popular location for weddings, as the Velbert registry office also holds weddings in two of the rooms there.

    Wonderful bailey, where you can also take a nice break. There is also the possibility of a round of mini golf or a small snack at the kiosk.
