Blankenstein Castle, which was built in the 13th century, was one of the principal residences of the Counts von der Mark.
Its idyllic location high above the river Ruhr makes it a popular
destination with visitors. Climb to the top of the 30 metre high tower
for an impressive panorama view of the Ruhr valley with the old village
of Stiepel and Lake Kemnade. Nearby is the small park - Gehtmannsche
