Where the Rhine leaves Germany, shortly before it forks into two separate rivers in the Netherlands, lies the City of Cleves (German: Kleve).
Emblem of the city and once the seat of dukes, the Schwanenburg - the Castle of the Swan - rises proudly above the flat surrounding landscape, visible for miles around as the landmark of a key location since time immemorial.
The rock on which the castle stands gives the town its name (Kleve = cliff).
