Schwanenturm (swan tower) Kleve Cleves Enjoy charming Cleves at the Lower Rhine on a city tour

A cultural walking tour through the charming town of Kleve, right behind the Dutch-German border, popular as a shopping destination for many Dutch visitors.
But Kleve has more to offer.

The roots of the long history of the County, later Duchy of Cleves lie in the Schwanenburg (Swan Castle) of the Middle Ages, which is still a captivating sight in the centre of Kleve. In the 18th and 19th centuries, Kleve became an important spa. Internationally renowned artists like Govaert Flink and Joseph Beuys were born or raised here.

The tour leads you along different places that mark important periods in Kleve's history, from deep down in the middle ages to more recent events when Word War II affected the people and monuments of Cleves. Some places refer to the close relation that Cleve has always had with the Netherlands. Other remains from a rich past are hidden in streets that can easily be overlooked. 


 Facade of the Düsseldorf town hall.Go on a guided city tour in Düsseldorf.

Your Düsseldorf experience is not complete without a glance upon the varied cultural riches and unique traditions of this town. 

More than shopping  •  go sightseeing in Düsseldorf

A city tour with Kukullus will show you some of the important spots and sights of Düsseldorf's cultural history. You will hear about unique local stories and legends, often full of Rhinelandish humour. The lively city centre is a popular nightspot, partly due to "Altbier", the unique type of beer which is brewed and drunk in Düsseldorf. The location on the River Rhine is of great significance for the city, as is the so-called "fifth season" when Düsseldorf falls under the spell of carnival.

A historic milestone was reached when Düsseldorf turned from a fishers' village to a town in 1288. Subsequent construction activities lead, among others, to beautiful churches, some of which still impress us today. An important role was played by the Elector Palatine Johann Wilhelm II. of Pfalz-Neuburg (1658-1716), called Jan Wellem, who had his residence here and who turned the city into a flourishing centre for the arts. 

Little tower on the roof of Siegen castle.Deep down in Southern Westphalia, in the Siegerland region, hidden between wooded hills, you will find the city of Siegen, looking back on a long history of almost a thousand years. In the course of time, some unique churches were built here, as well as castles and city walls for the local citizens. Bishops, dukes and counts of several generations fought over this little country which owed its prosperity to iron mining and still today is characterised by its iron industry.

Centuries ago already, the region maintained close relations with the Netherlands. For example through family bonds of the dukes of Nassau and Nassau-Siegen and by exporting the iron and iron products that this little land was so rich of.
