Grounds and Surroundings

Although the Burg is the middlepoint of the complex, there are a number of other points of interest on the estate. To the side of the Burg you will see the Burgkapelle (chapel) which was built from 1841-1844 in a Neogothic style. It has an ornate high altar, beautiful stained glass windows and a notable statue of St. Joseph. Next to it are the Burgmühle, in which an exhibit related to Cardinal von Galen and courage is housed, and the Backhaus in which you can learn more about Clemens August von Galen. In the woods 500 meters east of the Burg are the remains of the so-called Ferdinandsburg.

Walkers and cyclists can meander through the beautiful oak and beech woods and the fields to, for example, the Schweger Mill which was built in 1848, or Ana Klus, a little pilgrimage chapel south of Lohne to which Clemens August von Galen regularly went on pilgrimage. If you want to ride a bit further, you can also visit Quackenbrück, the Damme mountains or Cloppenburg's folkpark.
