Bentheim Castle is the largest hilltop castle in northwest Germany, receiving mention for the first time in 1050. For five centuries it has been owned by the Counts and Princes of Bentheim and Steinfurt.
Bad Bentheim is widely considered one of the oldest and most impressive castles in north-western Germany. Standing high over the valley on top of the mighty sandstone cliffs of the Bentheim Ridge, the castle towers over the small spa town. Walls that are five-and-a-half-metres thick and made of solid Bentheim sandstone protect the inhabitants against intruders. A branch of the noble family still lives in the castle, a large part of which is open to the general public all year.
