House Visbeck

There is something mystical about the former manor of Haus Visbeck in the middle of Dülmen's picturesque green landscape. The historical charm of the estate with its romantic chapel makes the beautiful grounds a popular venue for various markets and cultural events every year.

The chapel as the last testimony

The moated castle, which was first mentioned in a document in 1338, was named after the honourable men of Visbeck, who had the proud estate built on two islands. After a fire in the 17th century, only part of the outer bailey and the Lady Chapel remain from the once spacious fortifications. In its original form, the latter was an octagonal wooden chapel from the 16th century. Today's brick chapel was very probably built according to the plans of the famous Baroque master builder Johann Conrad Schlaun around 1749.
