Medemblik is a liitle village with a harbour and it is very peaceful. It is nice to have a stroll around this beautiful medieval castle. We haven’t been inside but the castle was open and it has a cafe with terrace. Fun fact to learn...More

We did not get into the castle since we arrived after it closed. However I would still suggest you might enjoy seeing the outside and it's location, if nothing else. It is lovely

I once visited the castle when it was closed, and I must have rated it higher, maybe 4 stars then. I found the exhibition quite disappointing. The knight's hall has a few historic items on display, but the hall itself is a bit underwhelming. Another...More

Cute all right but not much to see, nothing impressive, not much on display. The surroundings are nice with the port and the Ijsselmeer. A nice walk around is enough.

This castle looks good from the outside. It was built by count Floris V, so is old. Unfortunately it was closed. They should consider synchronizing opening times with the schedule of the steam tram from Hoorn.

Nice little castle with lots of information on the history of the place. Went with two small kids and they enjoyed climbing all the small steps. Good to spend an hour or two. Parking right out front (free).

An exposition about the castle history explained in a time line on the wall. Friendly people and for the kids there is a treasure hunt. Do not forget the canons outside

I am a volunteer in this Castle. So yes it is very important to me. The castle is very old. But great fun for adults and children. There is a hunt for the kids and in the summer season is always an exhibition. Also, there...More
