Not one of the oldest castles by comparison, but so very lovely to see! Inside and out, you will feel like you stepped into a fairy tale book. Definitely bring your camera; it's hard to take a bad picture. They have lockers to put your belongings in. As you travel through the castle, there are several stairs to take. There... More

De Haar Castle is a great outing for young and old. The park is stunning both in summer and winter - bring your camera. It's well worth to have a look inside the castle too, whether on your own or on a guided tour. The rooms have been furnished and in every room there are guides who can give you... More

Nice place to visit with kids, amazing garden and beautiful nature. For those who like taking photos, it is definitely a place to be, at least once.

Very nice visit at the De Haar Castle in the morning: beatiful park, nice animals (deers), nice walking tour inside the Castle. the entrance ticket is 16 Euro. the Castle was still used in the 1950's and it hosted many people from all over the world.

An interesting, picturesque castle indeed. It is a bit out of the way and expensive; and thus not for everyone.

Lovely gardens even in December. We paid 16€ entrance fee each, but it's definitely worth it! Great guides who also know English very well, many details to spot and analyze, around 5-6 rooms out of 20 are available for observation. We spend 2.5h hours there :) it's a great experience overall!

We visited the castle with the prime aim of the fair and shopping - and were delighted to find a fantastic Christmas fair as well as a stunning castle we could visit. There was a huge selection of stalls and food. The best thing about the fair was that it wasn't just Xmas stuff - there was an excellent range... More

Already in the 12 century, a stronghold was mentioned in this place; in the 14th century the original castle was built. Time was not beneficent for Castle De Haar; in waning of the 19th century, due to centuries of fighting and mishap, only a ruin was left. Then, the owners, the Van Zuylen Van Nyevelt noble family, decided to restore... More

Ok, the place is just beautiful. My god, the gardens, the castle, the old furniture! The place is breathtaking and I'd recommend for a picnic in the summer. The inside is also interesting in the sense it has information regarding the castle construction and it's owners, the audiotour helps and it's cheap. Unfortunately, the guided tour of the rooms and... More
