Long house

In the green north of the town of Heek is the Langes Haus, a special treasure of Nienborg Castle. The former Burgmannshof has been the seat of the North Rhine-Westphalia State Music Academy since 1989. As a venue for many public cultural events, the historic building regularly gives you exciting insights into its interior.

A house with many names

The "Raesfelder Hof", which was inhabited by the family of the same name in 1554, was given various names over the centuries. Known as the private "Delwigsches Haus" at the beginning of the 18th century, the pretty two-storey gabled house came into the possession of the municipality in 1882. Henceforth titled "Amtshaus", the elongated building served general purposes as the residence of two school teachers and the magistrate. But despite all the designations and owners, the descriptive title "Long House" prevailed again and again. And just as often as the property changed hands, the medieval farm has undergone constant extensions, renovations and loving restorations to this day.
