Irrland the farm-adventure oasis

Reviewed By Kennyr91 - Framingham earl

We went to Irrland whilst holidaying in Holland. For 6 euro a person it is a great day out with slides, trampolines, Playgrounds , paddling pools , an animal farm and much more. The purchase of beverages and ices are cheap compared to other parks although hot food selection is limited but that is because they provide 100s of BBQ for people to use and either buy the meat from the park or bring their own . It is brilliant well thought out park and wish we had something like this in the UK

Kasteeltuinen Arcen

Reviewed By Peter J

This place had rough times and a bankrupcy. If the start of this season Is a sign, it Is back to misery. There was not enough staff at the entry the petting zoo was not ready and the restaurant in the back ( containing the AED) was closed. The Stones at the White Buddah were loose so I almost fell. Maybe Hire some gardeners to clean up.
I hope they will clean up their act

Basilika St. Marien

Reviewed By AmericanInEurope02 - San Antonio, Texas

Kevelaer is the most popular pilgrimage site in northern Germany, so there are a bunch of churches in this one area. A couple of them are worth visiting for the artwork and the historic connections.
The artwork in this place is spectacular. Better than a lot of more famous churches, its problem is it is out of the area from anything else. If in the area worth coming to see, but not to divert long distances for.
The city is also really nice, would spent some time here sitting here in restaurants enjoying the atmosphere.

His-Toerchen

Reviewed By Peter H

Mitten in der Altstadt von Issum, gegenüber der Kirche, befindet sich ein alter Adelsitz aus dem 16. Jahrhundert.
Eine Wasserumwehrte Backsteinanlage, die man von der Straße aus, durch ein Tor Erreicht.
Dieses Bauwerk, hat den Zeitgenössischen Namen " His Törchen" von den Issumer Bürgern verliehen bekommen.
Der Torbogen durch den man schreitet, ist zweigeschossig überbaut, mit historischen
Nebengebäuden, die alle zusammen ein schönes gesammt-Bild abgeben.
Auf engstem Raum, viele historische Bauwerke, von einem kleinen Park eingerahmt.
.
1912 erwarb die Gemeinde Issum den alten Adelssitz.
Altehrwürdiges sinnvoll erhalten ist nicht so einfach, wie man denkt.
Man kam zu der Überzeugung, das man hier ein Heimatmuseum einrichten könnte.
Nach Planung und Umbauzeit wurde am 14 März 1993 dieses zwar kleine aber informative Heimatmuseum unter den Namen " His Törchen " eingeweiht und eröffnet. Issumer Bürger spendeten Mobiliar und altehrwürdige Gegenstände aus der Issummer - Vergangenheit. Die Räume des Museums füllten sich mit der Zeithistorie aus alten Tagen in und um Issum.
Ehrenamtliche kümmern sich um dieses schöne nur 145 qm grosse Museum.
Wechselausstellungen bereichern das Angebot, und finden hier sporadisch statt.
Zur Zeit ist eine Ausstellung aus der Kaiserzeit um 1900 in den historischen Räumen vom His Törchen zu besehen.
Der Eintritt ist frei. Spenden werden sicherlich gerne angenommen.
Ich war leider zur falschen Zeit hier.
Das His - Törchen hatte Mittags-Pause.
Da die Ausstellung: " Alles geht vom Kaiser aus " noch bis zum 19 November 2017 zu sehen ist, werde ich die Gelegenheit noch nutzen, und zur richtigen Zeit noch mal nach Issum kommen.
Damit Ihnen nicht das gleiche wie mir passiert, hier die Öffnungszeiten vom
His Törchen.
DI - Do. von 8:30 - 12:30 Uhr und von 14: 00 - 15:30 Uhr.
Frei. von 8:30 - 12:30 Uhr.
So. von 11:0 - 13:00 und von 15:00 17:00 Uhr.
Eintritt frei:
Neben dem Tot auf der Innenseite, befinden sich Toiletten. ( Kostenfrei. ) Und behinderten gerecht. Die sind auch geöffnet, wenn das His Törchen mal geschlossen hat.
So eine Toiletten Info, wird bei mir und meiner Frau immer mehr zur wichtigen Info
ich hoffe sie hilft ihnen auch.
Die Stadt - Informatin, befindet sich zu den genannten Öffnungszeiten, ebenfalls im His Törchen.
Die eigentliche Atraktion, von der ich Issum, bis her kannte, ist aus der Werbung, die Dibels-Alt Brauerei, die ist nur ein paar geminuten vom His Törchen entfernt zu finden.
So kann man altes und modernes gut miteinander verbinden, in Issum liegt das Gute halt sehr nah beieinander.
Das his Törchen und die Diebels alt Brauerei in Issum kann ich bestens zum Erkunden weiter empfehlen.

Kloster Kamp

Reviewed By Mike C - Christchurch, New Zealand

What a lovely place for a walk amongst the manicured Gardens or to ride the bike and carry on along the river. Stop for a coffee and homemade cake or visit the beer garden for lunch. Inside the church is lovely and quiet with a small shop. Also a painting gallery and ruins display. A huge playground for children and lots of areas for a picnic

Royal Air Force Museum Laarbruch

Reviewed By SecretSpi - Frankfurt, Germany

We (self, husband and 16-year-old son) visited the Royal Air Force Museum at Laarbruch-Weeze, having discovered it on the internet. My interest comes from a number of sources: my father was an RAF officer and although he was never based in Germany, good friends of his were. Their experiences have inspired me to write children's adventure stories about the RAF in the 50s and 60s.
Our visit was a real treat. The exhibits are fascinating in themselves, and everything is well and clearly presented and documented. But what lifted the visit into such a special and memorable experience was the knowledge and enthusiasm of the splendid chaps who run the museum, who brought everything to life for us with added information, stories and personal anecdotes. Many thanks to Ulrich, Heinz, Terry and Steve.
My only negative comment is that we couldn't stay longer as we had a long drive home ahead of us. Recommended for anyone with an interest in aviation and 20th century history, whether or not you have a personal connection with RAF Laarbruch.

Xanten was the furthest most town on the Roman/Germanic borders of the Roman Empire. The town was aligned to a Roman fort guarding the frontier. The reconstruction is fascinating and well presented. It is well worth visiting.

In dit café kan je ook artisanaal brood en gebakjes kopen. Je kan er ook ontbijten. De molen wordt bedient en het café wordt uitgebaat hoofdzakelijk door gepensioneerde vrijwilligers. Vriendelijk. Kleurgerief voor de kindjes.
