Culture is writ large in Nordkirchen. After all, it is home to one of the most impressive palaces in Westphalia, complete with a stately park. It is not for nothing that Nordkirchen Castle is affectionately known as the "Versailles of Westphalia".
As a baroque complex on a grand scale, Nordkirchen Palace captivates thousands of visitors every year. The palace park with its beautiful avenues and rich sculptural decorations is particularly worth seeing. Strolls through the park always offer new perspectives on Nordkirchen Castle. The inner courtyard of the castle is given a special touch when classical open-air concerts take place there in summer.
Nordkirchen has a lot to offer both culturally and in terms of leisure activities. The best way to combine both is to go on a Pättkestour by bike. You can also get active on the mini-golf, tennis or archery courses, on the boules playground, the dirt bike track or the challenging 18-hole golf course. If that's still not enough, you can cycle to numerous other castles and palaces in Münsterland. Ideally, the 100 castles route runs directly through Nordkirchen.
