Mentioned in 1050 for the first time, Bentheim Castle offers a rich history to retrace, which is broadly displayed all over the passages, rooms and cells across the building.
You can find books, coins and other items from a time long ago (such as the golden mug from Gölenkamp below).
But there is also an impressive art exhibition from gopea, a wonderful project supporting young artists.
