Tips

  • Andreas Platzl

    The Wasserschloss Bodelschwingh is definitely one of the most beautiful moated castles in Germany. Curved gables and turrets are reflected in the surrounding water, which truly provides an impressive picture. The castle is privately owned, so unfortunately can not be visited from the inside.

    One of the most beautiful moated castles. Entering the private grounds of Haus Bodelschwingh is only allowed at events or on the day of the open monument. You can walk around and in the adjacent forest great or cycling.

    The moated castle is very worth seeing but privately owned can only be visited from the outside.
    From 2 to 4 September 2016 there is gardening atmosphere, there is the possibility to enter the park and parts of the premises and be inspired.
    Admission 10 euros

    Unfortunately, you can not get to the castle, as this is a private condominium. One can only in more distant parts of the park, from which you can see the castle from afar.

    The Bodelschwingh house is a moated castle in the Bodelschwingh district of Dortmund, which belongs to the Mengede district.
    The facility is listed as a monument in the monument list of the city of Dortmund. The associated castle park in the style of a landscape garden is also a listed building.
    The manor house is now the residence of the zu Innhausen and Knyphausen family, the buildings in the outer bailey are rented out.
    It is therefore not normally possible to visit the facility, it is only open to interested visitors every year on the Open Monument Day.

    The castle is just beautiful to look at. Sometimes you can visit it at the beginning of September on the Open Monument Day.

    The Renaissance-style moated castle with an English landscape park and extensive outer bailey is one of the last privately owned complexes in the Ruhr area. The castle has been used as a family residence since 1302.
    The listed park of Bodelschwingh Castle is a gem of German landscape architecture. In 1865 the originally French garden was transformed into an English landscape park. The new park was designed by the famous landscape architect Eduard Petzold, who completed his training under Prince Pückler in Bad Muskau Park, which is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
    Except for the part between the Bodelschwingh Castle Church and the courtyard entrance, the park is not open to the public. (only in rare cases)

    The Renaissance-style moated castle with an English landscape park and extensive outer bailey is one of the last privately owned complexes in the Ruhr area. The castle has been used as a family residence since 1302. The outbuildings were used for agriculture for centuries. Changes in the agricultural structure have also left their mark here. Buildings no longer required for agricultural operations have been converted into residential and commercial premises over the past 25 years. The outer bailey and a large part of the park are used by the residents as a place to relax and, like the castle, are only open to the public on very rare occasions.
