It is currently in the process of being restored, in fact it is not possible to access the interior because there are workers working. Let's see how they work it out because it could be fantastic. As it is, it is already quite impressive. The truth is that I liked it a lot, let's see what comes out of there.

Castillo Alcázar de Laguna de Negrillos is being rehabilitated. The truth is that they have dropped it, it is very abandoned, to see if it now has a change of face. It is small, and has quite a few stork nests. Next to it there is a fountain to refresh you. It is next to the town hall and one of the town's churches; church of San Juan Bautista.

Hi. Spectacular castle that needs the 183,000 euros of investment for its conservation. A covered space inside and a lookout tower set up would be interesting. Laguna de Negrillos is fantastic.

Nice castle under reconstruction. In the absence of better signage on the nearby highway. Elsewhere they would have given more publicity. Let's hope the Board finishes it and can be visited.

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.
