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 that's not enough, you'll find numerous other Münsterland sights in the immediate vicinity of Havixbeck.

Havixbeck: The birthplace of Annette von Droste-Hülshoff

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.

On the trail of sandstone

Also worth seeing in Havixbeck is the Baumberger Sandsteinmuseum. Here you can learn a lot of interesting facts about the processing and use of sandstone. Discover and experience the pleasant rural surroundings on a cycling and hiking tour. This should be followed by refreshments with regional specialities: home-brewed cool beer and Westphalian dishes in Klute's Historisches Brauhaus.

The highest mountain range in the Münsterland

The Baumberge mountains rise up in the otherwise rather flat landscape of the Münsterland. Between the towns of Billerbeck and Coesfeld and the municipalities of Havixbeck, Nottuln and Rosendahl, you will find one of the largest contiguous areas of beech forest in the region. The landscape is particularly worth seeing in spring when the rape fields are in bloom.
