    Generous castle complex with farm buildings, meadows and pastures, moat and a castle garden, which is open to the public, while the central castle island is reserved for the owners.

    In 1152, a knight's seat of a Dietrich von Hovestadt was first mentioned in Hovestadt. The archbishops of Cologne, who pursued Westphalia's territorial interests in this part, had a castle built here to protect the Lippe crossing. The castle was mainly directed against the bishops of Münster, but also against the county of Arnsberg, the county of Mark and the lords of the Lippe. The castle was completed around 1276. It offered space to a Drosten and 20 Burgmanns and their families. Castle Hovestadt was destroyed several times - so in 1303 and 1346. After that it was always rebuilt. During the Soest feud of 1444-1449 it had strategic importance for Archbishop Dietrich II von Moers. In 1483, the castle and the office Hovestadt came as a pledge to Godert Ketteler. It remained in the family Ketteler. Goswin von Ketteler had the castle rebuilt between 1563 and 1572 into a castle.

    The line Hovestadt derer von Ketteler died out in the 17th century, and the property came in 1649 to the barons of Heiden Schönrath and Boke. In 1710 Freiherr - later Count - Friedrich Bernhard Wilhelm von Plettenberg-Lenhausen acquired the property. The Plettenberg-Lenhausen family moved their headquarters from Schloss Lenhausen to Hovestadt. This also started a new construction activity. To date, both castles are inhabited by branches of the Counts of Plettenberg.

    In 1152 a knight seat of Dietrich von Hovestadt was first mentioned in Hovestadt. The Archbishops of Cologne, who were pursuing territorial interests in this part of Westphalia, had a castle built here to protect the Lippe crossing. The castle was directed primarily against the bishops of Münster, but also against the County of Arnsberg, the County of Mark and the noble lords of the Lippe. The castle was completed around 1276. It offered space for a drosten and 20 castle men and their families. Hovestadt Castle was destroyed several times - for example in 1303 and 1346. After that, it was always rebuilt. During the Soest feud from 1444 to 1449 it was of strategic importance for Archbishop Dietrich II of Moers. In 1483 the castle and the Hovestadt office came to Godert Ketteler as pledge. It remained in the Ketteler family. Goswin von Ketteler had the castle converted into a palace between 1563 and 1572.
    The Hovestadt line of those von Ketteler died out in the 17th century, and the property came to the barons of Heiden zu Schönrath and Boke in 1649. In 1710 Baron - later Count - Friedrich Bernhard Wilhelm von Plettenberg-Lenhausen acquired the property. The von Plettenberg-Lenhausen family moved their headquarters from Schloss Lenhausen to Hovestadt. With that a new construction activity began. To this day, both castles are inhabited by branches of the Counts of Plettenberg.

    Hovestadt Castle, also called Haus Hovestadt, is located in the municipality of Lippetal in the Soest district. It goes back to a knight's seat, which was later expanded into a castle. The current facility was built as a moated castle in the late 16th century in the Lippe Renaissance style. In the 18th century, Johann Conrad Schlaun added baroque elements, especially in the outer bailey.
