    Residential building of Annette von Droste-Hülshoff

    After the death of her father, the author Annette von Droste-Hülshoff moved together with her mother and her sister Jenny in the only about five kilometers from her birthplace Hülshoff remote Rüschhaus, where she lived from 1826 to 1846 and wrote there, among other things, "The Jewish Beech" ,

    The Droste lived in the mezzanine of Rüschhaus three small rooms, which she shared with her former nurse. Her living room, in which she retired to write, called her her snail shell.
    The verwilderte in their times vegetable garden was later restored to Schaun's original plans as a baroque garden.

    Every couple plants an oak at their wedding in the Rüschhaus house.
    Unfortunately, we have not been able to find out what the origin of this custom is.

    Haus Rüschhaus is a country estate in the Nienberge district of Münster in Westphalia. The fiefdom was acquired by Friedrich Bernhard Wilhelm von Plettenberg in 1729 and sold by his widow to Johann Conrad Schlaun in 1743 [1], who developed it into a country estate from 1745 to 1748 according to his own designs and initially lived in as a summer residence.The property, surrounded by a moat, whose architecture meets the demands of a feudal aristocratic residence, is designed like a rural moated courtyard. Schlaun succeeded in a "synthesis of formal elements of the Villa Barbaro ..., the manor house with cour d'honneur and the shape of the Münsterland farm or Bauhaus with a fine facade structure ... and can thus be considered the idiosyncratic Münsterland successor to Palladio's villa." . The sculptor Johann Christoph Manskirch was also involved in the design.In 1825 the landlord of Burg Hülshoff, Baron Clemens-August II. Von Droste zu Hülshoff, the father of the poet Annette von Droste-Hülshoff, bought the elegant country house. After the death of her father in 1826, the poet moved in with her mother and sister Jenny and lived here - interrupted from 1838 by her stays at Eppishausen and Meersburg Castle - until 1846.The ballads and verse epics, Die Judenbuche and parts of the cycle of poems, The Spiritual Year, were created in Haus Rüschhaus.
