    Heessen Castle is a palace complex located on the lip in the Heessen district of Hammer and the most famous knight's seat in the area of today's city of Hamm. The typical features of a large Westphalian moated castle have been preserved in the architectural complex. Between the river and the Lippe, the castle and the buildings of the outer bailey face each other in an elongated oval. The three-winged main building is made of brick over the remains of centuries-old castle walls made of limestone and, as the most striking component, has a tower, the two gables of which rise over 30 meters.

    Heessen Castle is a castle complex on the Lippe in the Hammer district of Heessen and the most famous knight's seat in the area of today's city of Hamm. The typical features of a large Westphalian moated castle have been preserved in the architectural complex. The castle and the buildings of the outer bailey are located opposite each other in an elongated oval between the graves and the lip. The three-wing main building is made of brick over the remains of centuries-old limestone castle walls and has a tower as the most striking component, the two stepped gables of which protrude over 30 meters in height. Neo-Gothic stepped gables also close off the three wings of the castle, spiral staircases and bay windows show decorative forms from the Renaissance. The Landschulheim Schloss Heessen has been housed in the building since 1957, which has been called Schloss Heessen - private grammar school and boarding school since 2018.

    It is worth the walk to the castle. Unfortunately it can only be seen from the outer walls.
