Kleve is home to the Swan Castle, landmark of the countryside, which is not particularly attractive but rises up majestically above the Lower Rhine plain. It is a almost 1000 years old castle. From the tower of the castle you can see as far as the Netherlands, and since that tower holds nowadays a geological museum, it is possible to go up and enjoy the panoramic view paying an insignificant amount of money.
Interesting historical facts: In the 17th century Kleve’s Governor Johann Moritz van Nassau-Siegen made the reconstruction of Kleve and the development of the town’s surroundings. With the baroque gardens, copied from Berlin to Versailles, he ensured that his name will live on.
