    The building was built in 1936/37 as the official residence of the "SS-Burghauptmann" and administrative building. Today it houses the permanent exhibition "ideology and terror of the SS" of the districtism. Here, the history of the local SS activities and the local Niederhagen concentration camp is included in a nationwide general presentation of the SS. The Schutzstaffel (SS), its ideology and its unprecedented crimes are extensively discussed.

    In the middle of October the Alme - Marathon again leads over Wewelsburg.
    In Wewelsburg is "half time". The first or second section can also be run as a half marathon.

    The Kreismuseum is worth a visit as the collection is quite extensive and is not limited to the gloomy Nazi period for which the castle is known.

    Already very extensive .... instructive memorial of this madness of the past ... in the hope that it will never be repeated 🙏🏼
    Because there are no winners
    Very interesting about this in the north tower "the crypt" and "the black sun" ...
    After this exhibition you have enough mental cinema / thought carousel ... 😑
