The Burg is situated on a hill ridge, with high defensive walls and towers. Inside one finds an old chapel with a Christ as king (from before the plague, which turned the image into Christ as...

The castle is lovely and the place is amazing for a walk, we visited in autumn and the colors of the leaves made everything look magical. I recommend that you allow at least 1 - 1.30 hrs for visiting the castle, then another 2 hrs or so for seeing the park and the surroundings, and for having a coffee in... More

Just across on Germany, from the Dutch border, a magnificent castle perched high in the town, above the flat local area.

Still partly occupied by owner, the part you can visit shows the well decorated habitable rooms which are well decorated, what is amazing are the windows please note the hand painted and etched wondows which are not very common in castles, the glass is old glass full of airbulbs.

We were staying in DeLutte in The Netherlands,close to the German border and this was a recommended place to visit. It did not disappoint! The castle was incredibly well preserved with furnished rooms to see,dungeons,a deep water well,canons and great views from the walls.Kids and adults would enjoy seeing this castle.Just outside the castle itself is a beer garden but...

On tour with the bike. I'm travelling nearby the castle, it's on a small hill just across the border of the Netherlands. On a nice day you can see a beautiful landscape from the top.

This is a must see when you are in the area! So great to learn more about this part of the country! I have been over before when they had Die Ritterspiele! That takes you back in time!
