Discover The beauty of Kleve
Welcome to enchanting Kleve, a medieval jewel nestled on the leafy banks of the picturesque Spoykanal, Germany. Brimming with captivating rewards and a history going back over 1,000 years, Kleve surprisingly remains off the mass-tourism radar. Before word finally gets out, explore for yourself this lovingly restored, yet barely discovered little town with a day or two in our pick of central Kleve hotels. Gently ambling along sleepy cobblestone streets you won’t fail to miss Kleve’s imposing landmark, the Schwanenburg (Swan Castle). The beautifully preserved rooms of this grandiose hilltop palace not only witnessed the birth of Anne of Cleves, it’s tower was also immortalised in Wagner’s opera Lohengrin; you’ll learn all about Schwanenburg’s long auspicious past whilst wandering through its compelling museum. Be sure as well to climb to its lofty lookout, and you’ll be rewarded with panoramic views over the old town’s red-tiled rooftops to the trim pastoral scenery stretching out to the horizon. After conquering the castle, enjoy a celebratory German beer and hearty lunch in one of the surrounding traditional taverns. Refreshed and appetite sated, consider heading to Kleve’s stunning 17th century baroque garden. Strolling along tree-lined avenues, marvelling at striking water features and beautifully manicured lawns, you’ll find it absolutely magnificent in its scale and symmetry. Kleve may be small, but with a short break in our fine Kleve hotel you’ll find this hidden gem brimming with beguiling delights.
