Walking toward the leaning tower and down one of the alley-ways you will reach the historic church square and see a unique ensemble of Tudor-style houses hundreds of years old and built around the catholic community church, St. John the Baptist. The nostalgic cobbles and the trees complete this unique church square. Numerous benches invite visitors to take a rest and enjoy the scene. Community documents and records indicate that this was the oldest defence fortification, the ‘round village’. The church was built in the centre of the village. Documents manifest the defensive character of the church square by the court square ‘Vor dem Hagedorn’ (in front of the hawthorn). Thorny hedges and whitethorn shrubs used to protect the Delbrück Castle Church.
