Never ever have i been inside this 16th century castle in national park Utrechtse heuvelrug. Because its a very expensive hotel and restaurant now but the park around it is nice :) 

National park Utrechtse heuvelrug!

The first castle who was build there was from the year 1650 In all those years they reconstructed it and is today like it was in 1810. But in the year 1906 a big fire broke out and they tried to restore as good as they could. The land around this estate dates back to the year 1408 and the former castle was home to knights and was a real knights city. The park has many old trees on the estate like this one in front of the castle, dating back for more then 200 years.

Playing in the park!

Around the park there are 2 hiking routes and to big and accessible parking lots! At the parking there are signs directing you trough the walking route.  This is wat you see on the road.

On the other side of the building there is a big terras from the restaurant where you can see the big pound that's at the back of the building. Yes we are from the Netherlands so water every where :p

It is a magical place, the castle looks amazing on the outside, inside it must be great. And the natural park is simply beautiful, so many trees and colors, great pictures.

Thank you :) The inside is a little to modern. it would have been nice if they kept it old :p P\Here is a photo impression from there site!

You are right, it looks a bit modern, it would have been more striking to keep it as from the time.

They renovated it in 2012, We still have castles with the old interieur, i will do a post about them sometime :)
