City Palace Coesfeld

With its historic façade, the former town palace of Coesfeld blends harmoniously into the image of the district town of the same name. The adjacent well-kept palace garden with renaturalised Berkel river and lovingly landscaped parks characterises the cultural core of the town and makes it a distinctive asset of the western Münsterland region.

One castle, two names

The U-shaped complex was built between 1664 and 1666 as a Jesuit college. In 1803, this went to the Prince of Salm-Horstmar, who used it as a city palace for a long time. The building suffered severe damage during the Second World War, but was restored. The property was given its current name, "Liebfrauenburg", after the Second World War, when the order of the Sisters of Our Lady used it as a convent building. In 1977, the city of Coesfeld acquired the convent building and thoroughly renovated it in 2010. Today, the town palace serves as an administrative building and partly also as a school complex for the Liebfrauenschule.
