    Castle Velen was created from a castle, which was first mentioned in 1245. Over the centuries, famous master builders have created the "fairytale castle of the Münsterland". Today it is a "sports castle".

    Due to a leaseholder change and the resulting conversion work, it is currently only limited access (as of February 2019).

    Worth seeing are, among other things, the Orangerie and the Tiergarten. Of course, the gastronomy, when it is open again.

    Too bad that you can not commit the terrain. This leaves only a view from a distance on the castle and the parks.

    As already described by others, the sports lock has been closed and sold to a new owner. He was the first to build a fence around the castle, it could easily be stolen. But fortunately, the community has enforced that the castle park for the general public continues to be accessible. From there, the castle can still be visited.
