Cultural asset Haus Nottbeck

The former knight's estate is located on the edge of the Oelder district of Stromberg in the Warendorf district. Far away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, it rests comfortably between meadow orchards and fragrant fields. The best way to reach the cultural estate is by bicycle - enjoy the deceleration and immerse yourself in this oasis of literature and tranquillity with a picnic area for dreaming under the trees.

Blossoming in family ownership

The history of this old moated castle dates back to the 14th century: the "gud te Nuttbeke" is first mentioned in a document dated 23 April 1366. From the 15th century onwards, the estate was owned by the noble family von Oer. With them, Nottbeck experienced a 300-year period of prosperity. Around 1800, the manor house in particular underwent significant changes: The impressive classicist manor house was built, which today houses the Museum of Westphalian Literature.

Official residence for the district administrator

The estate really came into the limelight at the beginning of the 19th century when Haus Nottbeck became the official residence of Clemens Wenzelaus von Oer, district administrator of the then Beckum district. His sons made a national reputation for themselves as artists - Maximilian Josef von Oer as a writer and Theobald von Oer as a visual artist. Some particularly impressive works by the latter can be admired in the nearby Liesborn Abbey Museum.

The last owner bequeathed the old knight's seat to the district of Warendorf in 1987. After the use was unclear for a long time, the Museum of Westphalian Literature was opened in 2001. In the years that followed, the old walls were lovingly restored without interfering too much with the overall effect of the complex.

The Haus Nottbeck cultural estate as an excursion destination

If you take the bridge over the moat - the Münsterland moat - you can already see the classicist manor house through the gate. Cross the spacious courtyard, let the entire complex take its effect on you and finally enter: Behind the rose-covered entrance door, the "Literatür" awaits you, taking you into the modern permanent exhibition of the Museum of Westphalian Literature. You shouldn't miss the museum's exciting temporary exhibitions. At the moment you can go on a journey of thought with Westphalian authors in the exhibition: Go East!

Cyclists can find their way to the cultural heritage on the 100 Castles Route. Close to Haus Nottbeck you can also discover the Liesborn Abbey Museum, take a detour to the Stromberg castle ruins or visit the impressive Rheda Castle.

Insider tip: Picnic at Haus Nottbeck

The Haus Nottbeck cultural estate is an absolute insider tip for picnickers: you can comfortably eat the food you have brought with you at the adjacent meadow orchard. At the right time of year, snacking is even allowed and you can pick a suitable dessert directly from the tree! There is even a barbecue area. Spontaneous picnickers can fill their own basket individually at Haus Nottbeck and enjoy it in the shade of the fruit trees. More relaxation is not possible!

Museum Abbey Liesborn (Wadersloh): Kalnein, López, Schwarz Experienced Jazz Trio

Music

This trio lives European diversity. Born in different countries, saxophonist Heinrich von Kalnein, bassist Gina Schwarz and drummer Ramón López are united by their love of improvisation and composition. The three experienced artists, who are well established in Europe's jazz world, prove with their formation that the greatest quality in jazz still lies in the immediacy of the moment.

The audience expects melodic and rhythmic structures, surprises and the musicians' willingness to follow each other's playing at every moment and make something of their own out of it. Mutual sympathy and empathy, coupled with years of experience and enormous talent, is what makes this international trio so successful.
