Ascheberg is not one of the most popular holiday resorts in Münsterland for nothing. At the junction between Münster and the imposing castles of the southern Münsterland, visitors have excellent holiday opportunities.
Embedded in the Münsterland park landscape, Ascheberg presents its pretty townscape. Much greenery dominates the surroundings, while the town centre with its shops and restaurants presents itself in typical red clinker brick.
There are 18 castles, fortresses and manor houses in the vicinity of Ascheberg. These include Westerwinkel Castle in Herbern and Nordkirchen Castle, the "Westphalian Versailles". The famous master builder Johann Conrad Schlaun was involved not only in the construction of these palaces, but also in the decoration of the chancel of the Ascheberg church in 1740. Ascheberg also leaves nothing to be desired in terms of leisure and recreation: whether golfing, inline skating or cycling. Westerwinkel Castle can be combined with Nordkirchen Castle and Vischering Castle near Lüdinghausen on a cycling tour .
Hikers will also find the best conditions in Ascheberg. For example, in the local recreation area "Davert", which stretches all the way to Münster. The deep oak forests show the Münsterland from its mysterious side. In addition, the newly opened Way of St. James invites pilgrims.
