From Kleve

A card with views from from Cleves, a town in the Lower Rhine region of northwestern Germany near the Dutch border and the River Rhine. Built in the 11th century, Schwanenburg Castle is symbolic of the town of Cleves. Sitting on a hilltop, it dominates the town. The view from the top of the Swan Tower looks out over the Netherlands, a short distance to the west. The castle currently plays host to a geological museum.
