Keppelborg House

Stroll through the inviting idyll of a picturesque landscape park, celebrate and dine in historic rooms or sleep like the court nobility once did - you can do all that at the Keppelborg in Heek. The former Burgmannshof opens its magnificent gates and brings the medieval splendour of the former Nienborg Castle to life.

The Burgrosten of Keppel

When the two-winged building was erected in the 15th or 16th century in the course of the old castle wall, the von Keppel family, which gave the castle its name, was the castle lord. After the first extensive building measures in the 17th and 18th centuries, the castle manor with its two-storey manor house with basement and newer farm building passed by marriage to the noble family "von Heyden". Through inheritance, the Keppelborg became the property of the "von Hove" family in 1977, who have since lived in and preserved the house with active monument protection.

4 Tips for the Keppelborg House

  • Together with the Hohes Haus and the Langes Haus, this historic trio of houses is part of the former prince-bishop's castle of Nienborg. Together with the lowlands of the Dinkel, they make a great destination for an excursion.
  • On the upper floor of the romantic house are four exclusive hotel rooms, equipped with modern comforts, reflecting the ancient charm of the Middle Ages.
  • With the possibility of a civil wedding in the magnificent ambience of the grounds, the Keppelborg offers the perfect setting for an unforgettable day, both inside and in the spacious park with its old trees.
  • Only a few kilometres separate you from our Dutch neighbours with the beautiful cities of Enschede and Haaksbergen.
