Very disappointing and clearly overpriced. Only one guy in charge of a hord of 60 visitors. Only 5 or so kids get to try out the equipment. Very long explanations geared towards adults rather than kids. Not worth the money because understaffed. The lady just said they weren't expecting so many visitors (height of summer in August). Waste of an afternoon.

Original presentation, suitable for children less for adults. Very good presenter.

A very interesting collection of working replica siege engines with excellent presentation from engaging actors. Both fun & educational for young and old alike,especially for kids. The presentation and demonstration of the engines , forges, armoury and coin minting lasts around 1.5 to 2 hours and is continuous so just join and leave as you like.

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.
