Freckenhorst Castle

The magnificent baroque castle of Freckenhorst is located in the middle of the green Münsterland park landscape near Warendorf and impresses with its well-kept grounds and remarkable interior furnishings in their original state. The baroque furnishings with up to 25-metre-long oak floorboards, noble wall panelling and paintings, large fireplaces and mirrored halls are the most impressive contemporary witnesses of the complex.

From the abbey to the castle

In 1740, Clara Francisca von Westerholt, abbess of the Freckenhorst convent founded in 856, had the abbey building east of the collegiate church built as a new residence because of the dilapidated substance of the previous building. It was acquired by the von Merveldt family in 1841 and through marriage came into the possession of the Count von Westerholt family, who still live in and maintain it today. With its baroque and exclusive architecture and its noble furnishings, the castle is known far beyond the borders of Münsterland.
