Great to take walk and see the town from above. Historical information available in German and English. Restaurant and tourist information facilities too If you want to stay longer. Good place to start a walk from.

Enjoyed our afternoon at the castle. We went to the top and the view was worth it. Customer service is not very friendly or accommodating.

Worth a visit if you are in Bielefeld. We took a taxi from the town which was about 5-10 minutes drive, but walked back which took 20-30 minutes. We enjoyed going up the tower for even better views
