Lonely Planet review

In Havixbeck, about 10km west of Münster, Burg Hülshoff is the birthplace of one of Germany’s pre-eminent women of letters, Annette von Droste-Hülshoff (1797–1848). The red-brick Renaissance chateau is embedded in a lovely – partly groomed, partly romantic – park. The interior, which consists of period rooms furnished in the style of the poet’s day, can be explored with an English-language audioguide. Alas, there’s no public transport out here.
