“Nicely Restored Castle”
Reviewed 3 July 2014

We took the guided tour of the castle. Tour was in Dutch, but hand-outs in various languages were available. Gardens are not as extensive as some other castles we have visited, but the grounds were nice, and well-kept. Tour guide was helpful, and did speak English.

“Beautiful castle near of Utrecht”
Reviewed 19 June 2014

This castle is really amazing. Therefore to see the castle is necessary to pay fee to entry to gardens. This fee isn't high, but fee for parking is high enough. I can only recommend to visit this beautiful castle. In the garden is also nice labyrinth.

“MUST see if you're on the area”
Reviewed 9 June 2014

Very impressive castle, beautiful gardens, we planned 30-45 min visit and we stayed for more than two hours, even without entering the castle itself.
Just one comment: Why charging 4 Euro for parking in an area that has no space issues ? the entrance fees are not high enough ?

“Very Cool”
Reviewed 24 May 2014

This is one of the regions least known attractions. Many locals do not know this is open. Beautiful gardens and a first class tour. See how the Rothschilds lived at the turn of the 20th century. One month per year living there entertaining Royalty, stars and nobility. Attention to detail and no expense spared. This is a must see if you are in the area.

“Magnificent”
Reviewed 1 May 2014

This was an unplanned side trip for us as we found a half day of time before our plane out of country. Due to the time we had, we chose not to go inside but a peek through the door leaves me to think we would not have been disappointed had we the time to take the tour.

The bad: we toured the Kasteel de Haar right after an event weekend which had not been cleaned up by our visit. Renovation is underway on some of the structures.

The good: we got in free b/c they were still in clean-up mode. The Kasteel de Haar was beautiful, the clean lines and details of the buildings, doors and windows were amazing. The grounds were impeccable. Our visit was a little early in spring for much of the foliage to be budded and blooming. I could see a visit in mid-May being even better.

I stated there is wheelchair access, this may not be the case for a tour inside but the grounds can easily be toured for those in a wheelchair.
