You can only pre-book guided tours if you want to see inside the castle. It is relatively small. Very enthusiastic volunteer staff. Nice coffee shop for lunch, pastries and drinks.

You can only visit the castle on a tour. Our tour lasted 1.5 hours. The guide did detailed explanations in Dutch, no English. We only speak English and knew the tour was in Dutch, but we stood around an unusually long time waiting for the...More

The guided tour was nice informationwise, the guide itself wasn't so friendly, as were the people in the restaurant. Besides the Slot you can also walk around the tower which is nice and see some traditional Dutch houses.

Close-by Utrecht, impressive architecture, great to see from outside & surroundings, but also take a tour (Dutch only) and see the interior & decorations.

One can tour the place only with a guided tour. We entered with the tour but to our surprise, the tour was only in Dutch. For non Dutch speakers they give printed summary of what the guide is saying. So, you enter the place, the...More

As this is the place where my wife and I got married, this review might be a little subjective. However, Slot Zuylen is beautifully located just outside Utrecht in the small village of Oud-Zuilen along the river Vecht. The castle is very well kept and...More
