In the stately Moers Castle, you have the opportunity to delve into the noble world of Countess Walburgis von Neuenahr-Moers. She leads you through her former residence - obviously not as a castle ghost, but as a projection. The countess lived about 400 years ago in the castle which dates from the twelfth century. Unfortunately, she had no luck with husbands: The Spanish beheaded the first one, the second was killed by a gunpowder explosion. Moers Castle is one of the oldest listed buildings in the Ruhr region and houses the Regional Museum, the Court of Muses and the Moers Castle Theatre.
