Havixbeck is the birthplace of the famous poet Annette von Droste-Hülshoff and a delightful destination for castle enthusiasts and sandstone lovers. Hülshoff Castle alone is worth a trip to Havixbeck. If this is not enough for you, you will find numerous other Münsterland sights in the nearby surroundings of Havixbeck.
The poet Annette von Droste-Hülshoff was born in 1797 at Hülshoff Castle and wrote some of her most famous works here and in the neighbouring Haus Rüschhaus. It is best to visit the whole complex, the house, the beautiful historic park and the Droste Museum.
Also worth seeing in Havixbeck is the Baumberger Sandsteinmuseum. Here you can learn many interesting facts about the processing and use of sandstone. Discover and experience the pleasant rural surroundings on a cycling and hiking tour. Afterwards, we recommend a regional speciality: home-brewed cold beer and Westphalian dishes at Klute's Historisches Brauhaus.
