Herdringen Castle (German: Schloss Herdringen) is a castle in the Ortsteil Herdringen of the town of Arnsberg, Germany. It is the seat of the Fürstenberg-Herdringen family and the present building (built from 1844 to 1853 to designs by Ernst Friedrich Zwirner) is one of the most notable secular Gothic revival buildings in Westphalia.[citation needed]

In 1963, Herdringen Castle and its park were used as "Chelford Manor" during the filming of the German crime movie The Black Abbot.[1]
