Largest castle in the Netherlands, just outside the central city of Utrecht where I lived years ago...very picturesque with gorgeous grounds and landscaping, typical Gothic style from the era. Don't miss it!

Breath taking experience. Highly recommend everyone to visit this amazing castle. The castle is very well maintained, garden is absolutely stunning. Entrance to the garden was only 4 euro’s. Dont miss this hidden gem when visiting Utrecht. Bike ride there is great too.

Make the time to visit Kasteel de Haar when visiting Amsterdam. You will need a car for the visit, but on a beautiful day, it will be worth the drive. Make sure to pack a snack or perhaps a picnic lunch so you can enjoy...More

The castle and the park are very nice. It's very well kept. If you go early you could be there many hours. I guess the easiest way to get there is by car. With public transport as I did can be a little confusing because...More
