House Döring

The simple baroque manor house Döring in beautiful Marbeck, a district of Borken, guards a secret in the depths of its foundation walls. The far-reaching history as well as many exciting experiences of the originally medieval estate lie hidden here...

A little treasure in beautiful surroundings

In the cellar vaults of today's baroque complex are the cool contemporary witnesses of the castle's history: large-format foundation bricks of Döring Castle from the 12th century. Originally, the moated castle was built on an artificial, eight-metre-high hill. The residential tower offered the best view of approaching enemies. In addition, the complex was enclosed by a moat and equipped with a watermill, which still exists, and a farm building on an outer bailey. During its history, the seat of power of the chivalrous Döring family served as a loan, was conquered, pawned, sold and burnt down several times. In 1727, the building that can be seen today was erected as a two-storey, three-axis Baroque mansion on the foundation walls of the castle, obliterating the medieval traces. Since 1922, the castle has been privately owned by the Anton Klümper family.
