Like a well-kept secret, the former noble estate Haus Schwickering lies in Rorup, the green north of Dülmen. Only 200 metres from the 100 Castles Route, you can venture onto the surrounding paths to see the listed historic estate from the outside.
The main wing of the former moated castle proudly bears the coat of arms of the Wiedenbrück-Schorlemer family. The noble family is considered the builder of the castle, which was first mentioned in a document in 1359. Less than a hundred years later, however, the estate came into the possession of the von Schwicker lords, who gave it their name. Little is known about further changes of ownership until the present brick building was built in 1811 and the plastered extension in 1830. In the last century, the two-winged manor house with the round tower served as a residential building, summer residence, children's home and recreation home, and today houses a private architect's office.
