Visited Schloss Rheydt today on a sunny Sunday afternoon and was not disappointed. Stunning from all angles and the museum was interesting (although only had information in German and Dutch, word of warning for non German-speakers) and the grounds surrounding the castle are also lovely...More

Beautiful setting for this Rennaisance Palace in Monchengladbach. Well restored, large parts of it are a museum and also a good restaurant.

This is absolutely amazing place for family, friends, lovers or single ones. Anyone will find something for himself. There is a fabulous big park, a playground for kids, dungeons, beautiful peacocks and more. I spent fantastic time there.

Except for the peàcocks it is not a must do place , average historical site, would have been much better if other language instructions would have been added to the displays, just average for weekend stroll

Location excellent, buildings lovely, museum overpriced but with some genuine gems, eg. permanent curiosity cabinet collection for which we had taken 1 1/2 hr detour to see as we're restoring one. Photography not allowed (didn't say on website or marked outside), unfriendly staff said we...More
