Anholt moated castle near Isselburg in the western Münsterland is one of the largest and best-known moated castles in Westphalia. Together with the castle museum and Anholt Switzerland, the castle park is an interesting destination for a day trip.
The layout of the castle park can be traced back to the 16th century. As at Nordkirchen Castle, the park was converted into an English country garden in the 19th century by the garden architect M. F. Weyhe. After its destruction in the Second World War, the park was rebuilt by the Princely Family from 1964 onwards according to the Baroque model.
A tour of the park offers not only beautiful views of Anholt moated castle but also interesting insights into garden architecture. The water garden and maze are among the stylistic elements. Finally, don't miss a visit to the restaurant terrace with its wonderful view of the greenery.
The nearby Anholter Schweiz attracts many visitors with its game enclosures. The main attraction are the bears, which have become the emblem of Anholter Schweiz. But other animals such as lynx, fox or otters also delight visitors. The place to go is the "Swiss House", which is located in the middle of the landscape modelled on Lake Lucerne.
