“In real original shape built around 1275 by Graaf Floris v”
Reviewed 6 March 2012

You can make very nice tours inside and the castle is located in Muiden , about 15 minutes drive from Amsterdam.
The tour is also very interesting and also the castle is complete with the bridge

“Knights and falcons”
Reviewed 16 February 2012

Probably the oldest castle in Holland (12/13 th century) very lovingly restaured, work in progres on the outer forifications (moats and earthen walls surrounding the castle)
Spectacular setting in het (fortified) city of Muiden on the mouth of the river Vecht and the IJsselmeer (former Zuiderzee) defending the backdoor of Amsterdam.
Reconstructed medieval garden.
Knights and falcons (and games) from april through october

“Fairytale Castle at waterfront”
Reviewed 25 January 2012

Here you can visit a really old castle which is beautifully restored. Lot of history like the escape of a duke in ten book box.

“Cute castle in middle of moat.”
Reviewed 23 January 2012

Loved the idea that it's an actual Midieval castle; parapets, drawbridge, moat and all! It even has a falconery with demos from time to time. Conjures up images of very romantic scenes (of which I am sure is merely a figment of my own vivid imagination) of knights, kings and princesses. LOL.

Not far from the city centre, just hop a bus from Amstel station and you're there 40 mins later. A short walk to the front gate and you have a castle experience. € 12 for adults. If you have the Amsterdam Museumkaart, it is free admission.
