Commemorative places of Annette von Droste-Hülshoff

Hülshoff castle is located approximately 10 km to the west of Münster. Surrounded by a ditch with water, since the 15th century the building belongs to the family of Westphalian nobility von Hülshoff. Here in 1797 the most famous representative of the dynasty Annette von Droste-Hülshoff – a respected German poetess and writer – was born. Until introduction of euro her portrait was used on the 20 Mark note.

Museum Droste functions in the museum. Expositions help tourists imagine the life of a rich aristocratic family in the 19th century. The castle is surrounded by a majestic park that gladdens the eye with narcissus and tulips in spring and is drowned in azaleas and roses in summer. Benches and summerhouses are good for long romantic strolls, afterwards you can have a snack in a restaurant at the castle.

There is another historical building related to the life and work of Annette von Droste-Hülshoff in the suburb of Münster called Rüschhaus. She moved here in 1826 with her mother and sister after the death of her father. It was here that Annette created her most important works. Today her museum functions in the house. Visitors can take a look at the living room and the writer’s working study that she used to lovingly call “snail’s little house”.

The house itself is remarkable. It was constructed in 1743 by architect Johann Conrad Schlaun for his family. Unlike the Münster masterpieces of the master that were severely damaged during the World War II, Rüschhaus reached us in its initial form. You can still see the wallpaper preserved since Schlaun. There is also a stove made on his designs and a gilded family altar. Baroque garden surrounded by a ditch with water was restored in the 20th century with the old plans.
