Great example of old days where castles were to protect and as business. Seeing the hundreds of years old furniture and paintings was amazing. The tour was great and gets you to rooms you otherwise won't see. A must see.

I don't know about the tours, not joined them (and not sure if you really need one). Anyway, in the castle there are only few English information, most are in Dutch. Not a very difficult story, but get prepared to explain... More
