Hohes House


The Hohe Haus in the green north of Heek lives up to its name. With its three-tiered gable, typical of the Münsterland, the former Burgmannshof towers over the entire castle complex of the former Landesburg Nienborg. For private celebrations and public events, you can look behind the imposing quarry stone walls, enjoy regional specialities in the restaurant and stay overnight in the exclusive guest rooms.
