Haus Düsse: Ostinghausen Manor

The "Rittergut Ostinghausen" (Ostinghausen Manor) is first mentioned in chronicles in 1231. The property got the name of "Haus Düsse" after the water castle was built in the year 1655 by its owner at that time, Adrian von der Düssen. In the year 1907 the Haus Düsse moved to the Provincial Association of Westphalia, after it had passed through the hands of several Westphalian nobles. The first trainings in animal care and dairyman training took place as early as in 1927, because there was a dearth of well trained persons in farming. In addition to this, the next generation of farmers was also trained in obtaining milk, feeding and caring for animals, and maintaining them. In 1937 the Landesbauernschaft, the precursor of the present day Agricultural Chamber of Westphalia-Lippe (Landwirtschaftskammer Westphalia-Lippe) bought over the Provincial property.

Soest, one of the prettiest towns in Germany, has a church tower silhouette like that of Lübeck. 1,000 years old and still young: this is what the Hanseatic city is today. Many timber work houses, preserved with loving care, romantic streets, a city wall that is still preserved for the most part, with the impressive East Court gate or Osthofentor and the vaults invite you to take a walk. A city worth discovering: not only in November, when Europe's biggest "kermes" within a city is celebrated.



Lippstadt: the watery city in Westphalia, lies embedded in a park landscape between Münsterland and Sauerland. The "Venice" of Westphalia also exerts a special attraction on people, as a shopping city in the region. Besides several specialised stores, the pedestrian zone also has galleries where shopping is fun even during bad weather.

Arnsberger Forest and Möhnesee

The nature park of Arnsberger Wald is not far from Bad Sassendorf: an extended area with mainly firs and spruces, as well as beeches, oak, pines, larches, maple and ashen, is a feast for the eyes and balm for the soul. Directly adjoining the Möhnesee, and with a 40 km lakeside shore, it is an ideal destination for swimming, sailing and surfing, or in short: recuperating. The water birds are drawn mainly to the protected southern bay: 150 different species and a good 15,000 individual specimens from northern and eastern Europe have been counted here already.
