The castles and palaces are the treasures of Münsterland. In hardly any other region are there more beautiful witnesses to great architecture than in Münsterland. Imposing moated castles and romantic fortresses delight visitors and immerse you in times gone by. The castles and palaces in Münsterland are perfectly accessible by bike. The 100 Castles Route connects the most interesting historical buildings on four circular routes.
In order not to lose track of the many large and small gems, we have divided our castles and palaces into four categories for you. In addition to the highlights (yellow), the region also has some worth seeing (orange), some that are close to nature (green) and some that are private (blue).
