The moated castle of Haus Marck is located to the south at the foot of the town of Tecklenburg in the immediate vicinity of the Teutoburg Forest, surrounded by a historic moat, embedded in the nature reserve Talaue Haus Marck. The documented history of the family and the building dates back to 1368. The mercenary leader Jürgen von Holle extended the manor house in the Weser Renaissance style. Today's four-winged complex is mainly based on alterations dating from 1754, in the late Baroque style. The estate has been owned by the Baron von Diepenbroick-Grüter family since 1804. Preliminary negotiations for the Peace of Westphalia took place there before the peace treaties ending the Thirty Years' War were concluded in Münster and Osnabrück on 24 October 1648.
Today, Haus Marck is the branch office of the Tecklenburg registry office. Concerts, readings, guided tours, seminars and representative events are held here. The Knights' Hall and the Remise can be rented for events.

The puppet theatre "Knispel and the most delicious soup in the world" delights young and old. This is what the story is about: It sounds like a fairy tale: The "king of the bagged soups" is not to be trifled with, for he has strictly forbidden "making your own soup". Everyone abides by this, except Knispel, the dishwasher, who loves a well-cooked soup. What will happen to Knispel?
After the performance, the picnic baskets are unpacked! Food that you bring along is expressly welcome here! Because the Crocodile Theatre is part of the Münsterland Picnic Days.
