Lüdinghausen is a lovely, typical German town located in the heart of the Münsterland The house is located at the edge of the medieval town centre of Lüdinghausen. Since we live in a small town, all attractions are in walking distance: a big supermarket in the east, the town centre market places in the west, the two major castles of the town in the north.
