Surrounded by a moat and a beautiful park, Wilkinghege moated castle is located at the gates of Münster. The chic manor house, which houses a hotel with restaurant, lets its guests sleep, celebrate and dine in the style of glorious eras.
Today's castle originated from a moated castle that was first mentioned in 1311 as a feudal estate of the von Rhemen zu Barsfeld family. The castle subsequently changed hands several times and in 1545 was the temporary property of the von Droste zu Hülshoff family. In its present form, the brick building was erected in 1550 by the Steveninck zu Broich family and rebuilt in Baroque style in 1719. In the meantime, it was once again the property of the von Rhemen zu Barensfeld family and subsequently of other owners, but the land and buildings finally became the property of the Winnecken family. Initially operated and used as a country estate, they had the manor house converted into an imposing hotel , which today meets the highest standards with its elegant rooms, splendid rooms and a romantic setting.
Prominent guests have always known about the advantages of this tasteful house: Prince Bishop Christoph Bernhard von Galen, Baron Franz von Fürstenberg and the poet Annette von Droste-Hülshoff, whose brother lived at the time as a steward at the castle. Today, guests from all over the world stay at Wilkinghege Castle. The hotel is an ideal location for combining city and country holidays.
Embark on an interesting journey through the history of the house with the Winnecken family, who as owners not only lovingly run the hotel business but also keep the castle character alive.
