Town of velvet and Silk
The City of Krefeld is as multi-layered as its citizens. The City of „Velvet and Silk" is marked by its rich history, its architectural substance from the era of the silk barons, the Wilhelminian period and the modern era, as well as its parks and green spaces. Whether recreational areas, museums, theatres or architecture - the number of attractions is large and offers something for everyone. For example, for a day trip it is possible to plan an excursion to the Stadtwald with its playground, large beer garden and historic racecourse. Those in search of entertainment can visit Krefeld Zoo with its tightrope-walking gorilla Kidogo or embark on a trip through the city's history at the moated castle in Linn. Or would you prefer an enjoyable ride on our moving monument, the „Schluff" nostalgic railway? Krefeld is worth a journey of discovery at any time of year.
