Bettendorf Castle Tour

Don't miss out on your chance to attend a public tour! This guided tour of the Bettendorf Castle will take you around the exterior grounds of the historic Castle and you will learn about the builder (Teddy Bettendorf) and how he built the various features of the Castle, the history, and future plans for renovations to help preserve the Castle. The new gift shop will be open and offers T-shirts, hats, mugs, and more!

Attendees are required to park at the Fox River Grove Metra Station, which is just a quick seven minute walk to the Castle away. Handicap parking is available on the Castle grounds. Parking on Concord Avenue is prohibited and cars will be towed at the owner's expense.

Please note, this Tour is intended for smaller groups and individuals. If you would like to book a tour for a group of 40 or more, please email us at

The Bettendorf Castle is a private residence. Therefore, tours are restricted to the exterior grounds of the Castle only.
