Originally constructed in the 1200s, Sparrenburg is a restored fortress--complete with dungeons--that sits atop Sparrenberg hill. Climb the 37 m (120 ft) tower for views of the city and countryside, then check out the original thick fortress walls, as well as the moat, an ancient well, and the underground dungeons. Enjoy a stroll around the grounds, or sample some local Westphalian cuisine at the restaurant. The grounds are open to visitors year-round, though the interior is only open in warmer months.

  • Well preserved castle site. strong climb from the city, but nice surroundings to visit. You can have something to eat and /or drink. Walk around the area, enjoy the view over the surrounding area...

  • Nice area for a walk and if you pay a few euros you can climb the tower for a great view of the city.

  • A medieval castle on the top of the hill in the middle of the city. The tour was great and went underground, the views at the top of the tower are great and there are plenty of spots to rest and relax.
  • Nice place to visit. Good view 360 degrees over the city. You can also go for a drink and some nice food. For sure worth to visit this place when you plan to visit Bielefeld.
