Hohensyburg Castle – ruin, monument, theatre, mini golf and casino near Dortmund

Wow, it’s lovely here! This is what everyone says when they visit Hohensyburg. Actually, Hohensyburg is the name of the medieval castle ruin that is located on the 245 meter high Syberg hill.

But Hohensyburg, as a destination, offers so much more for a day out than just a ruin on a hill. With the imposing monument to Kaiser Wilhelm, which commands beautiful views across the surrounding Ruhr valley, it is a favourite spot for a Sunday outing for locals, young and old, and a definite must-see for visitors to the region.
