Sythen Castle

Schloss Sythen in Haltern am See is a typical Westphalian castle complex: historic brick vaults, rose-covered walls, a creaking wooden portal at the gatehouse with the old brick façade and the quaint little chapel lend the thousand-year-old moated castle complex a very special charm. And yet one decisive detail is missing: the castle.

From aristocratic residence to children's convalescent home

The first documented mention of the Germanic rampart or refuge "Sitina" dates back to 758 under the then King Pippin. In the course of time, various noble families lived on the site, leaving their architectural traces behind. The red brick remains immediately show that Sythen is true Westphalian. The manor house of 1845 must have had a completely different effect, with its columned arcature and sophisticated overall impression completing the complex for around 100 years. In the middle of the 20th century, the castle was to serve a completely new purpose: The Caritas Association set up a children's convalescent home in the rooms. After various renovations in the 1970s could no longer be carried out, the entire complex was threatened with decay. The manor house was demolished in 1972. It is thanks to the Sythen shooting club that the ensemble is still preserved in its present form, because it was not until 1989 that the town of Haltern am See was able to acquire the property and finally "save" it.

Cultural meeting place

Thanks to great civic commitment, the complex has been restored piece by piece and has grown into a cultural meeting place. Today, Schloss Sythen is used for exhibitions and concerts, but also for private events such as weddings and birthdays.

Fresh cake at the mill

An absolute highlight is offered to guests who visit Sythen Castle on Thursdays: In the castle's old mill, which is only a street crossing away, the "Mühlenfrauen" sell homemade cakes every Thursday from 2.30 to 6 pm. At the old millstones, which have now been converted into tables, you can have a picnic in an idyllic atmosphere while the water splashes.

Anniversary exhibition "Making History
06.02.2022, 17:00 29.05.2022, ca.18:00
Vischering Castle, Lüdinghausen
Organiser: Kreis Coesfeld
Exhibition
Party

Castles and palaces have always been places where art is created. Kings, counts and even lesser lords of castles were patrons of the arts, especially in earlier times. All over Europe, true artistic treasures were created that have left their mark on history to this day.

On the occasion of the 750th anniversary of Burg Vischering, the district of Coesfeld is joining this tradition and has commissioned internationally renowned artists to deal artistically with the castle, its history and motifs. The result will be an exclusive and high-quality graphic edition, which will be presented for the first time in the course of the exhibition together with other works.

Just as the castle has been writing its history for a long time, the artists represented are also writing (art) history with their works.

Cees Andriessen | Ruth Bussmann | Mari Girkelidse | Moritz Götze | Thaddäus Hüppi | Gunilla Jähnichen | Sala Lieber |Stefan Pietryga | Gan-Erdene Tsend

We cordially invite you and your friends to the opening of the exhibition on Sunday, 6 February.

Admission to the vernissage is free of charge and limited to a maximum of 50 people. Due to the pandemic, the event will be held in compliance with the 2G-Plus regulation. This means that only persons with proof of immunisation and a current negative coronary test will be admitted. In addition, FFP2 masks are mandatory. Please register in advance by calling 02591-79900 or sending an e-mail to kultur@kreis-coesfeld.de.

Along the SteverLandRoute, more than 30 stations between Nottuln, Senden, Lüdinghausen, Selm, Olfen and Haltern will offer a colourful cultural programme this Sunday, not only for cyclists. Guests at Burg Vischering can look forward to performances by DJ Honest John and various ensembles from the Lüdinghausen music school district.

The saxophonist John Keise originally came to Münster as a British military musician - today the son of Jamaican immigrants is a jazz legend in Münster among jazz friends as "Honest John". He regularly plays at the Hot Jazz Club at the harbour. The desire to dance is sure to arise at Burg Vischering. Christiane and Klaus Thiesing from the "Swinging Ahlen" dance school will be part of the party with a small performance and will certainly encourage people to dance along.
