This is a convenient and historical Bielefeld attraction. And, if you climb the tower you obtain a panoramic view of all of Bielefeld. On a pleasant day, it is s great location to still around or simply relax in the gardens.

One of my favorite sightseeing spots in Bielefeld. I go there with literally everybody who is visiting me and hasn't been there yet. Amazing view. Nice atmosphere. No entry.

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

We've had family over and one thing we obviously had to go to was the castle. We took the little train up there, as parking can be quite a hassle. The view is awesome, especially if you take the climb up the tower. Not too...More
