The gardens surrounding the castle are wonderfully kept and if you have a good day - enjoy roaming around. very picturesque. The tour was also very interesting. Only given in Dutch, but they give you a booklet to read along the way in various languages. Biggest disappointment was that they did not allow pictures inside.

I was in Holland in April and this magnificent castle would be even more beautiful when the gardens would be blooming at a later date. I had a lovely walk and enjoyed every minute I was there. It has been beautifully restored!

It's a nice castle. Some fun things to see. Nice gardens. But it doesn't have the distinction and meaningful history that you would expect from an European castle. It's just a mansion rebuilt by very rich people. Tour is all in Dutch. They do have handouts in different languages but it was obvious that the verbal tour was much more... More

We had read about this, but even with high expectations, they were far exceeded. The castle is in a fairy tale setting, the grounds are delightful to walk around and the tour of the castle itself is wonderfully done. The rooms in the castle are breathtaking and they have lovingly maintained. There are often fairs and festivals held on the... More

We live in The Hague and decided to visit Kasteel de Haar on Wednesday 27th May as a day out for our 6 and 4 year olds. The castle itself is a magical late 19th century architectural confection which out-Disney's Disney and had our 6 year old girl dreaming of being a princess, at least looking at it from the... More

Wife and I came on a lonely Monday afternoon during our road trip thru the Netherlands. We had a feeling like we had the whole garden and view of the castle for ourselves. Brilliant place. Well worth the admission + dogs are allowed for free (on the leash ofc)!

We live near Utrecht central, so it was about a 17 km bike ride to the castle. And another 17 km back. The castle is beautiful and it is surrounded by nature. There are animals like lambs and cows at the side of the road while cycling into the castle. Since we have the museum card we joined the tour... More

Note: an English audio tour is available. We live nearby and visit the castle once or twice a year. The staff is always friendly, helpful and very nice towards our children. Well managed and run. One of the largest and nicest castles in the Netherlands. (You will like castle "het Loo" too when you like to visit castles), which is... More

This castle is just stunning and so beautifully restored. The tour is great, but you are not allowed to take pictures (not even without flash) which is such a shame. We also had a look around in the Chatelet, which was OK, but did not add a lot to what we had already seen. The gardens are also beautiful especially... More

See how the rich lived in luxury at this wonderful castle. It is one of the attractions covered by the Museumkart. Restored from a ruin in the 19th century by the Van Zuylen baron (using his rich wife's money, she was a Rothschild), it is a showcase for how the wealthy lived. No expense was spared, the master architect Cuypers... More
