Historically, slot Zeist is of little significance, but it is well preserved. It can be seen as a monument to religious tolerance, in conjunction with the surrounding buildings, built by religious fugitives who found a new home here. The art inside is largely second rate or worse, but some paintings are nice illustrations of the history of the building. The... More

The castle is Zeist is pretty. The park around it is great for nice long walks or for running. They sometimes have cool events in the castle's garden. Too bad it's not possible to see the inside of the castle.

I booked a tour, which is only done during the weekend!.. The current building dates from the 17th century and is not as big and impressive as palace 't Loo in Apeldoorn (though it was designed by the same architect). It has some nice rooms all in barok style. In the garden of the castle they hold theater plays and... More

You inhale the atmosphere of forgotten times. Very suitable for small/medium sized groups for conferences, weddings or other private as well as company parties.

Probably we weren't informed well as we thought we were going to visit an old building and could wander through it and learn a bit about the history.
