    Bicycles must be parked in front of the entrance gate. You can walk around the area on foot and in about 20 minutes. There is a lookout tower with a wonderful view of the country and a castle chapel, which is also worth seeing. There is also a wine bar and two coffees, and there is also a museum to admire.

    Really worth seeing! But if you want to go there by bike, take a lock with you!
    Because the wheels have to stay outside!
    Have a good trip and greetings René

    Former water tower - built in 1899. He used to supply spring water to the entire palace complex from the deep well in the park. When the castle was connected to the public water supply in 1927, the tower lost its original function. Today the water tower is part of the Schloss Cappenberg monument. It was extensively renovated in 1992 and has served as a lookout tower ever since. 117 steps lead to the 25 m high tower. Source: medienwerkstatt-online.de/lws_wissen/vorlagen/showcard.php?id=23620

    The magic circle discovered, it is said by Baron von und zu Stein, was built in the extension of Cappenberg Castle to this point on a so-called positive earth magnetic field line and is said to have healing powers.
    Regardless of that, it is a wonderful place from which you also have an excellent view.

    The Cappenberg Castle (formerly Kloster Cappenberg) is a former Premonstratensian monastery in the district of Cappenberg the city of Selm. It is located on the northern outskirts of Lünen, north of the Lippe, on the southern edge of the Münsterland on a hill, the Cappenberg, surrounded by extensive beech forests, and is a lookout point overlooking the Lippe Alps on the eastern Ruhr from Hamm to Dortmund. Cappenberg was the first Premonstratensian monastery in Germany.

    The way up to the castle is very exhausting at the end. The steep incline is partially offset by stairs on the foot and bike path. When you arrive at the castle, you can take a short walk to get your pulse down and maybe refresh yourself in the café.
