“A place for the happy few”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013

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.

“a little gem in North Holland”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2012

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 little park which makes for a beautiful walk. One of the old barns has been converted in to a cafe, where they give you very good value for the money and it is of course a lovely place to sit and watch the castle (a least if you can sit outside). The staff at the castle and in the shop were all very cheerful and really gave the impression that they cared about the place and it's visitors. A must see place, if you're in the area.
