Castles in the Netherlands

Muiderslot Castle 

For those visiting the Netherlands who cannot get enough of medieval history, you will not want to miss discovering Muiderslot Castle's fascinating past. The castle represents seven centuries of Dutch history, beginning in 1285 with Count of Holland Floris V (1254-1296) and ending in 1825 when the castle was saved from destruction and transformed into a national museum.  


Palace Soestdijk

The Netherlands has a great selection of castles and historical monuments. One of the best places to visit is the Palace Soestdijk, once home to members of the Dutch Royal Family and host to notable historical figures, it now offers interesting tours of this 17th-century monument.

Het Loo Palace

The Loo Palace (or Paleis Het Loo, as the locals refer to it), located in the heart of the Netherlands, just outside of Apeldoorn. More than 300 years old, this former royal residence has undergone extensive renovations and was reopened to the public in 1984. From the moment you step inside, you'll be instantly transformed into another era where you will see how the royal family of the Netherlands, princes and monarchs of the House of Orange Nassau once lived. Visitors can choose of taking a self-guided tour or take the recommended guided tour from one of the palace staff.

De Haar Castle Utrecht

Located right in the center of the Netherlands, De Haar Castle is one of the few remaining European castles that have kept their medieval appeal, with towers, ramparts, canals, gates and drawbridges. Near Utrecht and only a 30 minute drive from Amsterdam, this castle was completely restored and partially rebuilt in the late 19th century.
