This castle has been rebuilt in the XIX century. The visit is not about long lessons of Dutch history but about the life of the owner family. The castle has been rebuilt with excruciating detail resulting in very nice interior and impecable exterior facade. Recently...More

This a stunning castle with magnificent grounds that are immaculately kept. With €5 for parking as well as €16 per person it felt a bit too pricey though.

Located 5 miles from Utrecht Centraal, this designer castle is easily accessible by the #9 bus or a 45 minute bike ride. Rebuilt with Rothschild money in 1892 on the ruins of a previous castle, Kasteel da Haar is picturesque with incredible well-maintained details and...More

This kasteel is a real surprise. It’s not a long way from the well known areas of the Netherlands and is picturesque and beautiful. It’s not in the guide books eg rough guide but it’s on the museum card and very accessible. Enjoyed the edifice,...More
