On our cycle around the town we stumbled across the castle. It was very pretty with a most surrounding most sides. Sadly the exhibition was closed when we arrived.

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 was that Rembrand’s Nightwatch painting was hidden in this castle during WWII. Recommended.

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 room is furnished as a gothic room, and that is probably the best there is to see. There is a puppet prisoner, with spoken text, which is nice for variation. The history of the castle is explained in text on the walls, which is necessary, but one would hope for archeological finds to go with that. There is also an exhibition about pirates - very appropriate since some were active around the castle - but this is also mostly written text. And barrels and sails, but nothing of historic interest, although it may be nice for children.

Nice place, great for photos and to get some Dutch culture. The moat and the harbour are really nice to walk around. But not much else to do...

We went to see this castle. The main gate and door were both opened. When we arrived at the reception there was nobody. After 10 minutes a staff member showed up totally surprised by our presence. She informed us that the castle was closed and that she was waiting for a group of students. I asked if we could enter anyway and pay by bank card. This was not possible as the cash machine wasn’t working. I didn’t have the right amount of cash money with me and she didn’t have any change. We hoped that she would let us in anyway, but this didn’t happen. A minute later we were outside in the rain on our way back to the village of Medemblik. I’ve read we are not the first to complain about a closed castle...

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
