When I searched the web for other people with our name, I didn't find only people but a lot of other interesting resources. So here comes my extract (if you know other interesting web pages which should be listed on this page, please drop me note).
Before I start with our last name, I want to provide 2 pretty nice pics, that I received today (13th Nov. 2006) by Email and which are related to my first name: Alf, the village und Alf, the factory. Thanks to Sven! Today (April, 16 2007) I received another great picture: Alf, the street. Thanks to Anja!
Cities called Windhorst:
There is a German city called Windhorst. It's located in Niedersachsen, Landkreis Diepholz/Nienburg. It was really challenging to find more details and if you can provide more information... ;-) It seems that city is a bit oversized since as far as I found out Windhorst is just a small district from 27333 Warpe. Later on I found another link which made it even a smaller thing: At this site the district was called Burdorf Windhorst - but there must exist something because they have their own emblem, which you can find here.
But until I will look into it on my next holidays in that region, there's the presumption that there is just a small accumulation of houses... ;-)
There is another city, located in Kansas, USA (district Ford). I found this website (www.cityreview.us/kansas/windhorst/ is down unfortunately but here you can find a map) with some details but nothing more. When I look at the hotel list of Windhorst, Kansas it seems that we cannot take this Windhorst granted to be the bigger one because none of the listed hotels is located in Windhorst - so I'm really interested in this Windhorst too but probably I will run into a holiday problem... ;-)
Please find also Peter Windhorst's genealogy website about the Windhorsts of Wesenstedt (Germany) and Minnesota (USA), containing trees, photos etc.

Of course the name Windhorst has reached a great popularity by Lars Windhorst. Starting as a "German Wunderkind" of information technology he had built an international enterprise several years ago. Today he is still present in press releases but with stories about the inglorious end of his company. I don't know much about him and about the stories but maybe there's a chance that we will see him in a far away future here at windhorst.name and maybe he could tell us about the highs and downs.

Other things related to Windhorst:
Actually I found a music album in France. There isn't much available but I guess that the singer/band is called Windhorst, not the album title?!
On this website I found some information about an actress, Malissa Windhorst. "Mistress of Seduction" is the film title mentioned there. Talking about actors we should mention Karl-Heinz Windhorst too. He was part of several German TV movies (i.e. "Monaco-Franzl") and act in theaters (i.e. with German well known Wussow, Semmelrogge etc.).
