The tower has some changing exhibits, check their website to see what's on. The farm is now converted into a restaurant, ideal for a high... More

If you say the name Slochteren in the Netherlands, you connect this automatically with the huge natural gas field, discovered in the 60's of last century. This discovery changed the energy landscape in the Netherlands forever. But that Slochteren is also a beautiful quiet village where you can visit the mansion and grounds of Fraeylemaborg, I did not know. But,... More

A really lovely Dutch country house originally owned by a leading local family. Restaurant next to the main house. Superb landscape to wander around. A really good couple of hours.

after walking we went here for a short break. Wheater was cold so we liked a hot choclate. We were disapointed the choclate was'nt hot, a little warm, we could drink it right after serving.

A beautiful "borough", a beautiful and well-maintained park, and a "coach house" where nowadays drinks are served. A guided tour through the castle is helpful, and we have been lucky with a volunteer who entertained us quite a bit!

We have spent a couple of hours in that Borg (Castle). The cafeteria serves a nice apple-pie. The gardens around are very nice to walk.

This castle is well worth a visit. It is very small, but all the rooms have been restored back to what they would have looked like in the past and were fully furnished, decorated etc. It did feel like real castle, rather than as a museum which can be the case in these places. The castle has a very nice... More

Seems a little thrown together. Styles in some of the rooms feel "recreated".
