Doorwerth Castle

A robust castle on a friendly estate!

The rich history of the castle, of more than seven centuries, boasts glorious periods as well as darker ones. Nowadays, Doorwerth Castle shines in all its 17th century glory, including a gatehouse, coach house and stables. The vegetable garden is managed so beautifully that you’d expect it to still supply the lord’s kitchens with vegetables and flowers.

Inside, you can marvel at the richly decorated period rooms and imagine yourself to be living at the castle. In the armour room, children can try on a chain mail suit. English tours can be given upon request.

In the south wing, you find a comprehensive overview of the history of the castle, forestry and hunting in the Netherlands. Enjoy a cup of coffee, lunch or a drink in the Castle café. Souvenirs and local products can be found in the castle gift shop.

For those who would like to combine a visit to the castle with a bike ride, we recommend this cycling route along estates and castles.
