Arcen Castle was built in its present form in the 17th century by the Dukes of Geldern. A predecessor building from the 16th century was destroyed in 1646.The outer bailey is surrounded by a moat. Over a small bridge you reach the castle courtyard through the main portal of this bailey. Above the portal is the stone alliance coat of arms Geldern-von Lützerode. With the exception of the main portal, which is built in natural stone, the entire castle is a brick building.The entrance to the castle garden worth seeing including main building costs 15, -, which are absolutely worthwhile.
