Leukerbad is a very pleasant place, you feel good there and the view is superb you can even see the hills of the castles of Sion at the bottom of the valley. The castle and the town hall are very beautiful buildings. There is a large underground car park in the old town and in the square towards the castle there is a very pleasant little cafe. The medieval church is very beautiful inside we enter it through the small door on the north side of the building, the main door being closed on the other hand on the south facade of the church there is an entrance next to it. a cross that leads not into the church but to an ossuary with the walls adorned with perfectly stacked human bones, it feels like the catacombs of Paris and believe me when you don't expect it when you come back it's surprising

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.
