Lembeck Castle for the Castles and Palaces Day

The castle name "Lembeck" is derived from Low German. It can be translated as "Lehm-bach", which indicates the former location of the castle in the middle of a swamp and bog area. Adolf von Lembeck was the first knight of this name to be mentioned in documents in 1177 as a ministerial of the Münster diocese. Dietrich Conrad Adolf von Westerhold-Hackfurt had the castle extended and converted into one of the largest moated castles in the Münsterland region between 1670 and 1692. After the conversion work, a Baroque garden was laid out to the west of the castle according to designs by August Reinking, based on the French model with symmetrical path axes.
