Lebenberg Castle

Tscherms, Italy

Lebenberg Castle is located in the midst of vineyards at the slopes of the Marlinger mountain. It was built by Herrn von Marling in the 13th century and in the course of time, mainly in the 16th and 17th century, adapted and enlarged to a palace of an impressive size.

The castle is private property and can be visited. Worthwhile seeing is a fresco in the knight’s hall, which depicts the genealogical tree of the the Fuchs family, who were the owners of the palace until 1826, over 12 generations, and the medieval collection of weapons.

molto bello anche se abbiamo potuto visitarne solo una parte perché abitato dai proprietari. Giardino esterno e vista panoramica molto rilassanti, la guida è stata molto cortese e simpatica, all'interno non si possono scattare foto, comunqie un bel ricordo.

Fascinating castle from 1200 and the guide did a great job of bringing it to life (in German and Italian). Well worth a visit.

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.
