Full description
Visit Castle Muiderslot and experience one of the oldest and best-preserved castles in the Netherlands. Marvel at the over 700 years location surrounded by water and gardens. The castle arose in 1285 and there are many stories to tell about its long and turbulent history. See the Muiderslot castle that has been a national museum since 1878. Before then, the castle was completely dilapidated and even came close to being demolished. Fortunately, that never happened and in 1878 the castle became one of the first national museums in the Netherlands.  Be inspired by the castle that was renovated thoroughly by the architect Pierre Cuypers, whom you may know from Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam and Amsterdam Central Station. See the collection that revolves primarily around two historical eras: the Middle Ages and the 17th century. Discover what life was like in these times when also the poet and writer P.C. Hooft lived at the castle. Some of the halls are arranged the way they were when he lived here.

    An interesting water castle in a beautiful setting! The castle is not huge, but it has an interesting history and is brought closer to you with the audio guide. Unfortunately the public connection is not that good. Train to Muiden goes regularly, but then the bus to the castle only once an hour! A taxi is recommended here. We had a really nice taxi driver who gave us lots of tips!

    Very beautiful castle from the outside, an easy-to-use audio guide. Unfortunately rainy weather but which does not remove the charm of the castle. Too bad the gardens were not accessible.
