Description

Along the path connecting the castles Lüdinghausen and Visschering twelve bronze busts of celebrities were erected on the initiative of the Heimatverein Lüdinghausen. The twelve figures come either from Lüdinghausen, were connected to the town or have a special meaning for the town. The busts are made by local sculptress Annette Wittkamp-Fröhling (AWF) and by Thorsten Stegmann (TS) from Essen.
