To the east of the market square is the imposing Romanesque church with its 56metre high tower. To the left is the old curia building from the 18th century with a high hipped roof and a round-arched doorway, which today houses the local library. To the back is a small two-storey half-timbered building.
The single-nave Petri Chapel, built on the legendary place of worship of the first Christians in Freckenhorst, dates from the 11th century, and was restored in the 19th century. In 2001 it became a museum of religious art, housing treasures from the convent and the church, which have a history of a thousand years. It is the most important ecclesiastical treasury in east Münsterland.
On the north-west side of the market square is the 20th century building of the local savings bank.
