Historic town centre of Kalkar and fast breeder reactor

It is worth taking a detour to visit the Church of St. Nicholas in the centre of Kalkar. It has the Passion Altar, by Master Arnt - the most influential artist of the latter part of the 15th century. But Kalkar is also famous for its fast breeder reactor - the largest industrial project in Germany yet to be completed. A nuclear project begun in 1972, the plant had a very short service life, as it closed its doors in 191, following its late launch in 1986. The operation was deemed to costly. In 1995, the complex was transformed into a leisure park, with a conference centre, hotels and restaurants.
