Castles & Fortresses
Insights into the past before fairy-tale backdrops
All over NRW, grand castles and imposing fortresses have exciting tales to tell from different eras. Many of the castles and fortresses are great places to visit for a weekend day trip, with their English landscaped gardens, baroque parks, museums and art exhibitions. They also offer the perfect setting for weddings and events. Please note that interested parties should check the websites of the museums to see whether dates and opening times have changed. There you will usually find information on behavioral requirements, access limits and hygiene measures as well.
