The former barracks no VIII, built in 1809 on orders of Napoleon.
Wesel is a town strategically placed on the right bank of the Rhine river. From here the North German plain offered easy access to Berlin, Poland, and deep into Russia. The Romans built a watchtower here to keep an eye on the wild, beermug wielding barbarians, and Charlemagne assembled his troops in Villa Vesalia for campaigns against the Saxons and Danes.
From 1805 till 1815 the French occupied large areas of Western Germany, the Rhine was the border of the French Empire, Wesel being their bridge-head on the right bank. (they imitated the Romans in more than one way)
At present the barracks are housing a music school.
