Ascheberg, in Münsterland, immediately captures interest with a handful of stunning landmarks.
One of this is the St. Lambert’s Church Tower which can be seen from pretty much anywhere in the city. You’d do well to make the effort to get a closer look rather than make do with a long distance view. No, it’s not just another church steeple. Make sure you check out the choir loft and the baptismal font once you’re inside.
The buildings in its close proximity add to the general ambience and make it all worthwhile.
Ascheberg’s architectural gems also include the 15th century St. Anna Catholic Church, the 17th century St. Benedict Church, and the Schloss Westerwinkel. The castle, in particular merits extra attention. It has an English style park embellishing its baroque good looks.
Ascheberg lays great store by sports and this is evident in the various facilities available in town. That works out perfectly for any one visiting as well. So, there you go, you can have your pick from tennis, soccer, volleyball, horse riding, and badminton. Just visit TuS Ascheberg to get a good feel of things.
Ascheberg has a great deal of fun and games during their many fairs. The Potato Festival takes place in October and this is when you get to try out all sorts of potato products from chips to soups. Be warned, it can and will be fattening unless you let go and totally enjoy yourself, that is. ;-)
Then there’s the Jacobian Fair in July taking place in a monstrous fairground. They even have shooting matches to make things even more exciting.
