Limbricht Castle originates from the 10th century. It was first a motte castle with a wooden tower. The stone buildings were erected around 1250. During the 80 years war the army of Duke of Parma looted the castle (1579). During the Napoleon wars it was a military hospital (1813-1814) and during the World War I an internment camp for German prisoners-of-war. The current castle building dates from the early 1600s and is built on Maasland Renaissance style.

The service is really unfriendly...The food was not cooked fresh, it was warmed up... One person didn't come with us and we wanted to take him something as takeaway. The portions were big, so we decided to take the rests to our hotel, as we did many times before (it is not our first stay in the Netherlands), but the cook had forbidden us to do that!?!?) He said there is a law...Heee???? Are takeaways also forbidden in the Netherlands?? So everyone just breaks the law??? Awful experience!!!

Venue stunning, food is very basic and tap water is chargeable! If they improved upon the food offered this place could be incredible! Iced drinks and coffee menu for the summer would be a bonus!

Caerleon Roman Amphitheatre

Built around AD 90 to entertain the legionaries stationed at the fort of Caerleon (Isca), the impressive amphitheatre was the Roman equivalent of today’s multiplex cinema. Wooden benches provided seating for up to 6,000 spectators, who would gather to watch bloodthirsty displays featuring gladiatorial combat and exotic wild animals.

Long after the Romans left, the amphitheatre took on a new life in Arthurian legend. Geoffrey of Monmouth, the somewhat imaginative 12th-century scholar, wrote in his History of the Kings of Britain that Arthur was crowned in Caerleon and that the ruined amphitheatre was actually the remains of King Arthur’s Round Table.

Today it is the most complete Roman amphitheatre in Britain.
