    Velen Castle emerged from a castle that was first mentioned in 1245. Over the centuries, famous builders have created the “fairytale castle of the Münsterland”. Today it is a "sport castle".

    The orangery, the zoo and of course the gastronomy are all worth seeing.

    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.

    A detour is worth it. Maybe early or a little later, because you are not alone.

    Velen Castle is an impressive, well-preserved moated castle that unfortunately cannot be visited. However, you can stroll through the small castle park.

    A very nice park and well-preserved historical buildings. Unfortunately, it is privately owned and has no access. You can no longer enter the courtyard from which the main photo was taken. The cycle path through the castle courtyard indicated by Komoot is not accessible.
