We were over from England visiting family, and we came here to have a look around before catching our flight home. We have always wanted to visit the castle because our name is van Heeswijk. It was a lovely looking castle, very different from the castles back in England, but I love these sorts of European castles. It's a shame... More

Beautiful castle! Definatly worth a visit. You need to pay to enter but if you are not keen on doing so you can just walk around and enjoy the scenery.

We went here last sunday, had a warm october sun and a good mood with us. A very authentic charming castle, with a guided tour that was very interesting, surprised to learn more details about my own country's history.

My friend, daughter and I started our day with a visit to Kasteel Heeswijk. It was easy enough to find (with a satnav) and lots of parking is always helpful. It's not cheap, about 10euro per adult. The staff inside the castle were lovely. We mentioned in passing to another tourist and an employee that we were on a castle... More

I was travelling solo and needed something to do in the area. I found this on the web and it looked pretty interesting - I love getting off the beaten path. The website says tours every hour, so I gave it a shot. Given the time of year, I expected to be the only one and I was right. The... More

Richly decorated rooms, good explanations by the guide, interesting history, good protection against witches. The art is alright. Frederik Hendrik conquered the castle in preparation for his successful and important siege of Den Bosch. Louis XIV is said to have stayed in this castle during his invasion of the Netherlands. As good as it gets for a Dutch castle (you... More

The castle and the grounds are beautiful. We went on a tour where the tour guide explained about the castle, its previous owners, paintings and other items. A lot of original decor is still on display so you get a good idea of what live on a castle in that time was.

This old and very well kept castle is definitely worth a visit if you are in the southern area of Holland. The castle is surrounded by a moat and you are able to visit the inside of the castle on sundays and some other days as well. The surrounding area is great for a stroll to enjoy the country side....

My family and I were staying in central Holland for vacation and we made Kasteel Heeswijk a must on our to-do list. Touring the castle in the off season means you have limited days to visit. Make sure you call or visit their website in advance, but when we toured it was open for visitors on Sunday and Wednesday. We... More
