Amazing location with good parking and a lot of cool things to explore. Beautiful scenery and buildings. I think young kids interested in building would love it. Also -visit the little restaurant/cafe across the street from the entrance

Most likely I would've looked at the experience in another way if I hadn't visited Prevnost Komarno the other day. There is no guidance. If there is, then it's probably optional. This place definitely has a history but you don't get to know anything about it. You get a small book but it tells you nothing. The place itself is like the other fortress.

Huge place. it takes at least an hour, if you want to take the full tour. Descriptions are in Hungarian, English, German and slovak.

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.
