concerts, markets and festivals. The castle park in particular is a tourist destination, especially when the blossom is out.
On approximately 30 hectares, depending on the time of year, visitors can explore the diverse flowers in the castle park and visit the castle all year round. Unique for the Ruhr region is the juxtaposition of baroque landscape design and flowing landscape structures in the English style.
The water castle was first mentioned in a document in 1376. Today numerous cultural events take place in and around the castle. For example, the annual Pfingst Art Market, the Herten Castle Concerts and the Ruhr Culture Festival.
