The Davensberg Castle Tower on Castles and Castle Day

The castle tower was part of Davensberg Castle and was probably built around 1500/1530 during an extension of the complex. In the tower, on the main floor, there is a beautiful Gothic star vault as a fireplace room with the coat of arms of Büren-Koevorden. Underneath is a dungeon with a torture chamber and a stretching bed. Today, the castle tower is used as a museum of local history. With its idyllic and natural location in the north of Ascheberg, it is also a popular venue for private and public events. A visit to the castle tower can be beautifully combined with a hike through the Davert nature reserve.
