The rich history of the castle spans more than seven centuries, and has seen both glorious and less pleasant times. Nowadays, Doorwerth Castle shines in all its 17th century glory, and includes a gatehouse, coach house and stables. You could almost imagine the well-managed vegetable garden still supplying the castle’s kitchens with vegetables and flowers.
Inside, you can marvel at the richly decorated period rooms, and imagine what it was like to live in the castle. In the armour room, children can try on a chainmail suit.
In the south wing, you will find a comprehensive exhibition about the history of the castle, forest management and hunting in the Netherlands. Enjoy a cup of coffee, lunch, or a drink in the castle café. Souvenirs and local produce can be found in the castle gift shop.
English tours can be arranged by appointment.
