  • The castle is beautiful and shows us a visual of the city seen from above. The landscape beyond the town, has many farms with very green. Inside the castle still has a museum with the history of the city

  • From outside of an impressive castle, perched above Kleve. We have climbed the tower. 182. Best to do, with a magnificent view on all four sides as a reward. We were there on a sunny day. Not very hot. 20 or 21 degrees at most. As you get higher came, it became increasingly warmer. Then are you longing for the moment you are above. You expect there fresh air, of a circulation or open Windows. Unfortunately, the above was very hot and very stuffy. There was not even a tiny window and all which were locked. There was something that seemed on an air conditioner, but it was not. There was no employee present, only a few visitors. I understand that those Windows on lock down because of many like-minded colleagues, to make up than anything else for oxygen supply. If it is warmer outside, you get here really an irresponsible situation. The chance that someone after such a strenuous climb in this sultry is unwell, is quite real. By a fainting, or worse: a heart attack. As aid worker I know that it's a tricky and time-consuming operation is to someone than to get down. Time is not there, in a life-threatening situation. So Schwanenburg, do something about the oxygen supply at the top of the Tower!

  • The view is interesting with good weather. The tower contains several floors with archeological pieces, historical descriptions of Kleve and, of course, maps and explanations about the surroundings of Kleve which can seen in the nice view from the upper floor. Entrance is only 2 euros per person!
