Events at Wolfsberg Castle on the occasion of the Palaces and Castles Day

Wolfsberg Castle is a moated castle in Lüdinghausen in the Coesfeld district. Only one wing of the castle remains, the core of which probably dates back to the 16th century.
Wolfsberg Castle, which was first mentioned in 1271, was owned by the Wolf von Lüdinghausen family at that time. As the permanent house had been built without episcopal permission, it was destroyed in 1271; it was not until 1314 that formal permission was granted for a new building, which was destroyed again as early as 1324. Around 1380, the house passed by marriage to the von Hake family and from them, after the von Hake family of Wolfsberg had died out in 1537, to the von Schenckinck family. In 1549 Johann von der Recke zu Heessen acquired the estate as a result of his marriage to Ermgard von Schenckinck. In 1778, the von Boeselagers inherited the castle and estate. The present appearance is determined by alterations of the late 18th century. It is a simple, elongated plaster building with a crippled hipped roof and a single-axis central risalit. In the vaulted cellar, the history of the castle can still be recognised.
