House Vögeding

Idyllic and often unexpected for walkers and cyclists, the moated castle of Haus Vögeding lies at the green gates of Münster. The hidden location in the midst of untouched nature makes the mighty castle complex a secret gem and offers picturesque views over the moat to the private estate.

A castle at the present location of Haus Vögeding was first mentioned in a document in 1353 when the house was donated to the Cappenberg monastery. The feudatories were the Münster hereditary family of Bischopink. The present Vögeding House was built in the 16th century as a closed quadrangular courtyard complex, which was probably completely surrounded by moats. The elongated farmhouse and a round tower still exist today. From 1827 to 1939 it was owned by Baron Droste zu Hülshoff. The estate then passed to the tenant family Schulte-Hullen, whose hereditary family Weissen now owns the property.
