The Raesfeld Castles, Vishering and the Northern Churches Castles
Muenster, carefully storing the heritage of its architectural complexes in Baroque style, and the region of Muensterland is a center of more than a hundred castles, which beauty doubles in waters of the ditches and lakes surrounding them.
No matter how much to admire – it isn’t enough!
Departure is in the morning. Departure time depends on the city of departure and is reported when ordering a trip.
The land of silence and tranquility, spacious meadows, silver rivers and century woods. The land, where the most northern colony of a flamingo lives, wild Westphalian horses are still grazed on fields, and majestic medieval castles keep the slow conversations about the past with their water reflections.
The walk along the streets of Raesfeld, which is just like transferred by the mysterious wizard from an old grandmother's card to reality, will lead us to the Raesfeld Castle, which walls are shrouded in secrets and legends.
The city of churches, students and bicycles, Muenster, modestly, but with the greatest advantage, as well as befits the city, which arose once on the wave of Charles the Great’s hand, will tell us about those events, which were once happening on the streets of this city. St. Paul's Cathedral, where the famous astronomical clock is, Saint Lambert's Church, Prinzipalmarkt and of course a city town hall, where the Muenster Agreement was signed, which lay the foundation of a modern era in the international relations – all this and many other things will appear before us in full magnificence.
Having left Muenster, we will go to the Fortress of Vishering in the center of the natural reserve, where the majestic horn beams admire their reflection in an unruffled surface of the fortresses reservoirs, and as if laugh a little at sedately floating carps. We will make the real travel in time, having passed the booming halls of the oldest and at the same time the most saved in Northern Europe round defensive fortress, and it seems just like we will hear the clanking of swords, cheerful laughter of the knights, having a rest at a plentiful table after successful hunting, the song by the trouveres, put in honor of the beautiful ladies, and groans of the prisoners in fortress vaults …
And, of course, the most beautiful pearl in a castle necklace of Muensterland, stiffened in a stone baroque music – the Northern Churches Castles, the Westphalian Versailles, where the slow walk along avenues of the castle park and in a castle garden will bring you tranquility and a pacification.
