Surrounded by moats and situated on the green southern edge of Billerbeck , Haus Hameren, a listed building, towers gracefully above the town. In the peaceful surroundings of this place of recreation and pilgrimage lies the private moated castle, a well-kept architectural monument with a far-reaching history.
It is assumed that the site of the castle was already used as a place of worship for Germanic gods before the 10th century. The eponymous Knights of Hameren took over this site and had a moated castle built in the 13th century.
Haus Hameren befindet sich in Privatbesitz und kann nicht besichtigt werden.
