Bentlage Monastery for the Castles and Burgs Day

On the banks of the Ems, nestled in a centuries-old Münsterland cultural landscape, lies the former monastery of the Teutonic Knights and later Bentlage Castle in Rheine. Today it is used as a cultural meeting place. In the monastery's museum, medieval art treasures from the monastery period meet high-calibre modern loans from the collection of the LWL Museum of Art and Culture. Other focal points are exhibitions of regional and national contemporary art, a workshop for printmaking and a wide-ranging programme of events for those interested in culture and families.

Live Speaker at the Museum Kloster Bentlage

14.00 - 17.00

The Live Speakers are out and about in the museum today: these are museum guides and hosts with whom visitors can quickly strike up a conversation between 2 and 5 p.m. and who will answer precisely those questions that are of interest on the spot. For example, the question may be why and when the former monastery of the Knights of the Cross was converted into a castle. The new special exhibition "Drawing Dust" on the upper floor will also be presented, combining such exciting topics as relic dust, microscopy and the art of drawing.

  • Start: 2 p.m.
  • Duration: approx. 3 hours
  • Price: free of charge
  • Meeting point: Museum ticket office
  • Registration not required
