Floda church well known for its architecture and decorations. The original church was built in the 12th century, but the current brick church was built over it in 1886-1888. The rich mural paintings were made in 1480s by Albertus Pictor and are very well-preserved. The original colours are still visible due walls have never been whitewashed or overpainted as usually in old churches.

There is a Baroque chapel of field marshal Lars Kagg (1595-1661) in the church. It was designed by Erik Dahlbergh in 1667. In the sacristy is located a reliquary from the 15th century. The pulpit dates from 1662. There are also paintings Lars Kagg brought from Germany as a war booty, for example a Jean Boulanger's masterpiece made in 1618.

Incredibly beautiful Church and environment! Had really wanted to get the chance to see the inside, but unfortunately seems to be closed full time?

Неожиданная находка ⛪️ живу в этом регионе уже 12 лет, но и не знала, что здесь находится это великолепное строение, к сожаления из-за короны она была закрыта (хотя я была там в воскресенье, обычно по воскресеньям проводят мессы) надеюсь в следующий раз мне удастся увидеть как солнечные лучи проникают сквозь витражи внутрь этой церкви.

Krickenbeck Castle

Krickenbeck moated castle is one of the oldest on the lower Rhine. Its history dates back to the year 1104, when the castle was first mentioned. It is unclear why the old castle, which was certainly inhabited by Count Reginar, was abandoned or destroyed. In the mid-13th century the castle was moved to the current location. At the end of the 14th century the new castle belonged to the Counts of Kleve.

Johann Friedrich II of Schesaberg converted the castle into a Baroque mansion between 1708-1721. On September 7, 1902, a fire destroyed the entire mansion. From 1903 to 1904, a three-winged castle was built in the Neo-Renaissance style. Today Krickenbeck is a conference center.
