Came here looking for daily Mass. The man at the front desk was incredibly helpful and kind, in true Spanish fashion. The exterior of the church is beautiful. The plaza in front is serene and peaceful, perfect for prayer or a rest. And the horse drawn buggies come right through here, right in front of the church.

Paying 6 euros to get in and they don't even refill the anti-covid hydroalcoholic gel... no photos policy is the only protection they offer. Thank you for helping the virus...

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.
