The old water castle Zelem lies hidden at the edge of the town Kranenburg in the width of the lower Rhine area. The lower Rhine basin is one of the most popular cycling regions in Germany with the best-signposted cycle network, which leads many cyclists to the gates of the castle. Annually close to 200,000 geese from Siberia overwinter in the nature reserve of that area and offer an impressive spectacle. Accommodations and culinary addresses can be found for every taste and every budget. The proximity to the Netherlands provides additional, interesting possibilities for excursions.
