Private castles in Münsterland

The private castles in Münsterland are waiting for you along the way: as regional gems, they lie hidden behind hedgerows in beautiful countryside and tell you their story from afar. The private estates are not open to the public. Nevertheless, they are worth seeing and offer interesting stories, because they are often still inhabited by the original Westphalian noble families and passed down from generation to generation. As testimonies of Westphalian architecture, they enrich your cycling tour or your walk.

In Münsterland, more than 100 palaces, castles, monasteries and manor houses adorn the gentle park landscape. To help you plan your visit, we have divided the historical buildings into four categories. The private castles and palaces in Münsterland belong to the blue category.
