Our suggestions:

Varied activity programmes are no problem at all. What about canoeing on the Lippe? On dry land, our partners' interactive education specialists offer thrilling activities for groups. The castle is surrounded by a densely forested landscape that is perfect for exploring the natural world and going on long walks. In your free time you can use a football field and barbecue area (5 minutes' walk), table tennis tables outdoors, day rooms with piano / grand piano as well as televisions and video recorders. We would be happy to assist you in planning your trip.
