Burg Arras.

Around 350 AD the local rulers wanted to protect themself against the Franks. They built a devensive position on a hill. Around 950 AD they  added a tower. The French captured the castle during the 9-year-war. During this occupation a part of the castle was destroyed by an explosion.

Check out our album about castle Ehrenburg.

Most likely the church of Trier built Burg Ehrenburg. In 1688 the French took the castle and a year later they partly blew it up. Today you can visit it.

Have a look at all our albums with photos of castles.

We also have a blog. One of the stories is called A Kids Hike.


Near Rheden is a visitors center of Natuurmonumenten, a great start for a hike in the Veluwezoom. The sheep pen and climbing trail are great for kids.
