It's one of the Castles in the Netherland that is still in good condition. The location is just 15 km southeast of Amsterdam in small village, Muiden. At least twice a year I visit this castle with all my guests. Every first sunday of the month there is a "knight" play. The guided tour is every half hour and the... More

An afternoon trip to Muiderslot will definitely be a fun one! The castle itself looks like something out of a storybook with its moat, draw bridge, turrets and falconry tent just outside the walls. It is in perfect condition on both the inside and outside and the gardens are a great place to wander through. There are a few different... More

This is hands-down one of the best attractions in Netherlands! This castle may be smaller than the more majestic or cavernous ones in Prague or Germany, but it pushes all the right buttons. It's got all the features of a castle that we always read about in fairy tales. Draw bridge, armoury room, watch tower, watch wall amongst many others.... More

The Castle of Muiderslot is an excellent choice for a day out of Amsterdam. Take the train at Amsterdam Central to the village of Weesp (beautiful place itself, with some windmills nearby), and then you can rent a bike or walk (about 3 or 4 km) to the castle in Muiden. The castle is small, but it gives an idea... More

I love the castle and it's surrounding. My daughter enjoyed the trip too. Guided tour was not very useful as it was done in Dutch language and we were given some booklets in English. However this part of the castle cannot be accessed without a guide.

The town around the castle was the most perfect part of this visit. We traveled by train from Amsterdam and walked through the outskirts of this town for quite a while before we made it to the castle. The turning bridge over the river that allowed boats through the water was so fantastic!! We tried some bitter balls and beer.... More

I went to Muiderslot by metro and bus. Most tourist information will suggest train and bus no.110 but I had 1 day Amsterdam card for unlimited travel by bus,tram and metro so there is another option. Take metro line 51,53 from Amsterdam central to Amsterdam Amstel station then catch bus no.320,322 and get off at Bushalte P+R,Muiden. This is Connexxion... More

Very friendly and unlike many other castles, they are happy for you to take photos, so you can make your own memories. The whole area is cool. This is not your regal castle full of gold and finery, but something more practical. The lords who controlled the river made the wealth. There are some great examples of knights' clothing and...
