Lüdinghausen Germany

"Lüdinghausen is a municipality in the district of Coesfeld in the state of North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany. It is located on the Dortmund-Ems Canal, approx. 25 km south-west of Münster. It is known for its three castles, among them Burg Vischering." courtesy of wikipedia.com.

After breakfast, we continued our mini trip to the next city. Our first stop after the short drive was Burg Vischering.

Burg Vischering is one of the largest castles in northern Germany. It was seriously damaged in World War II, leading to minor alterations in the design of the castle. It consists of a small courtyard enclosed with low stone walls, a long wooden bridge over the moat, and the main building. There was a museum whereby I had some fun with wearing a helmet and trying the saddle on the wooden horse.

We continued to stroll to the other castle but the pics on my hard disk seem to be corrupted now. :(
