Schellenberg Woods

Extensive woodland area, park and Schellenberg Castle

From the Rathaus Rellinghausen stop and bustling Frankenstraße, the romantic old heart of Rellinghausen with its half-timbered houses and Blücher House can be reached in just a few minutes; you then go into Schellenberg Woods with the castle and park. Schellenberg Woods are a northeastern offshoot of the Ardey Hills; you go uphill to the castle via the Pilgrimsteig. The castle is definitely well worth seeing, with its beautiful inner courtyard and gate buildings as well as the Baroque chapel, which is situated in the small Castle Park. As part of the NaturLinie 105, Schellenberg Castle is a beautiful counterpart to Borbeck Castle located in the northwest.
