If you love history this is the place to go. Wonderful exhibits with 'pit stops' where you can learn more about the history of Jerez by watching a short film. . Each room takes you to the next era, a journey through time. Excellent place.

The museum is well laid out, you're directed by signage. I don't know if there was an English language audio guide, but I had fun reading the Spanish and trying to figure it out. It's a beautiful location, outside the central places. And the senior discount can't be beat - Eu 1.8!

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.
