Water Castles/Palaces

Between Dortmund and Münster there are numerous small castles and palaces that are surrounded by water. Some go back to medieval times while some are from the Baroque era. Nordkirchen was built in 1703 and is modeled on Versailles, but a much smaller scale. It has a beautiful garden and grounds. Vischering was built in 1271 and looks very much like something from that period. Both were very interesting to visit. (May 7)
