Comfortably to Lüdinghausen by train and bus.
In the 13th century, the Bishop of Münster built a fortified water castle in Lüdinghausen. Today, Burg Vischering is one of the best-preserved castles in the entire region - but it has much more to offer.
Without the many skirmishes in the Münsterland region, the Bishop of Münster would probably never have had Burg Vischering built: as a fortress, it was supposed to ensure that the lords of the neighboring castles did not take their lust for power as far as Münster could expand - for this the knight Albert von Wulfheim was taken into service. Sounds like a cloak-and-dagger movie, and anyone who looks at the equally picturesque and chunky Vischering Castle today will, with a little imagination, gain an idea of how things might have been in the Münsterland in the Middle Ages.
The Trutzburg has now been used as the Münsterland Museum since 1972. In addition to the permanent exhibition on the theme of "WaterCastlesWorld," it also provides information about the region's tourist attractions with a "Portal of Castles and Palaces in Münsterland. And these are diverse: On the 100 Castles Route for example, you can tour the region's green parkland by bike, and Münsterland is also known for its many equestrian farms. It is considered the leading equestrian center in Germany: 1,000 kilometers of riding routes are, after all, a pound!
