Ennigerloh — Medieval Churches, Palaces, And Windmills

Ennigerloh began as a place of civilization ages ago. This ancient town was founded when a monastery was built in the year 860. By 1050, the town had its current name of Ennigerloh, and a travel destination for future generations was born.

The area, with a rural esteem, is situated among forests and woodland, which is great for people who value activities which require physical exertion. Such areas provide sites for scenic walking, hiking, and even biking.

People who value the lilting language of poets will appreciate the Poetry Slam, or poetry competition, held by the Kulturverein Alte Brennerei Schwake. Formerly a distillery, Alte Brennerei Schwake is now an entertainment venue for guests and residents of Ennigerloh.

The location features some areas of the old distillery for informative and amusing tours, but is now home to more amusing options. Two cinemas, meeting centers, and a small theater are available to keep your needs satisfied. The location is also used for various art exhibitions, which art buffs will appreciate.

Ancient churches make up the historic and architectural attractions in Ennigerloh. Rückämper Kapelle, which was built in 1687, is like a walk back into time. The church is old, but not decrepit, as some standing structures this old are. More than nine centuries old, St. Mauritius Church is another old-fashioned structure which will create ancient nostalgia during your stay.

If the regular tourist fare does not appeal to you, you may want to visit the old fashioned Ennigerloher windmill. Windmills add a pastoral charm to any locality, don’t they?

Another interesting site is Schloss Vornholz, a towering castle which was built circa 1300. Tarnished by war, but rebuilt, this castle is a monument to Germany’s past as a monarchy. Seeing the sturdy fortifications and medieval ramparts will also take you back to a time gone by.
