We are the 21st, 22nd and 23rd generation of the Bussche family, and we do truly love this place, and together we work hard for it to sprout, flower and prosper! During summer we and the Ippenburg crew as well as Thomas Bühner, three-star chef of La Vie, Osnabrück, subsist on our kitchen garden, which with its 5000m² is the largest in Germany. Three times a year, during our garden festivals, Ippenburg castle is open to the public.

We are looking forward to your visit!

Your individual offer!





“Die Ippenburg“ – a stronghold in medieval times, an elegant manor in the Baroque era, a romantic fantasy and a status symbol in the 19th century – has become a real anachronism in the 21st century. To live here, you have to truly love this place or it will make you suffer. You have to wrest the flowering gardens from the swamps, set color and light against the gray mists, and create an “invincible summer” to last “through the depths of winter”( A. Camus).

There’s no future without a past – our tradition is our challenge and our passion

In 1345 our ancestors moved to the marshlands of Ippenburg to establish their family compound. Their clever marriage politics, social networking and a fine sense of power political contexts had led them to great prestige and wealth already since the 12th century. But it was only with a lot of good fortune, passion and this very special and magical atmosphere of this place, that the fortress was able to survive to see the 21st century.

Today’s castle is already the third building in the 600 years of our family’s history. It is a magical place in the middle of nowhere, and it has been a challenge for each generation, demanding commitment, passion and devotion.
