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 church to the secular convent

The Abbess of Westerholt had the imposing castle built after the original abbey building burnt down in 1740. This castle was once frequented by noble abbey ladies, who travelled long distances to meet in the famous complex. With its baroque and exclusive architecture and its noble furnishings, the abbey was known far beyond the borders of Münsterland. The castle served as the residential and social home of the Freckenhorst Canoness Abbey, which was founded in 851. Since 1840, the castle has been in the family possession of the Counts of Westerholt and Gysenberg, who live in and preserve the house.
