Castles & fortresses

A little day dream of Baroque courtly magnificence or the knightly nobility of the middle ages? The historic mansions in the region encourage this. And at the same time take a look behind the scenes and take a trip back in time. Descend into the casemates of Bielefeld's Sparrenberg Castle and discover what archaeologists searched for the ruins of Iburg and Ravensburg. Take a stroll in the Baroque Park of Castle Neuhaus and find out what everyday life was like for the princely family in the Detmold residence.
