It's one of the most famous landmarks in town for good reason: ascend the tower (though a museum, it's certainly not the best one in town) for impressive views of the surrounding countryside... and some free exercise. Follow the path down from the castle for...More

From a distance this castle is quite impressive and it is overlooking the city of Kleve. We only decided to have a wander around it and in the little courtyard, which was enjoyable. The city centre with all the shops and restaurants is close by.

From the outside it looks as if there is more to it, but it was only a very limited part of the castle that was part of the tour. The rest is used on a daily basis by regional officials. Nice view at the top,...More

Staying in Holland we made the effort to visit Germany and Kleve is the nearest town. The Schwanenburg castle is very impressive and imposing over the town. We went inside and climbed the tower. At only €6 for the family it is very reasonable. There...More
