Burg Hülshof (11th c), Havixbeck (GER)

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

At the beginning of the 11th century the water burg Hülshoff was first mentioned in records as Oberhoff „zum Huelshoff“. At the first it was just a house with thick walls stood on the land area and surrounded by water, as on an island. Between 1540 and 1545 the manor house was extended and the burg was fortified by the order of Heinrich I von Droste Hülshoff, because of dangerous times. In 1628 the current avenue of lime trees was heaped up and paved by the order of Henry II, now it is the main entrance to the castle. In the 16th and 17th century it was rebuild and extended in the style of Barock.
