This is one of the handful of borgen in Groningen that are open to the public. It has a large forest-garden at the back, in which many manmade objects (let's call it 'art') are hidden. The annex buildings in front of the borg house the...More

Scenic little chateau on small island surrounded by water and great English park. The exterier moved me more than the interier, but both have strong romantic feeling.

This was a nice little stop on a day spent driving around Groningen - I would say you can see it all in about 30 minutes. Staff was friendly and it was an easy visit of a fairly small but well-preserved castle. We enjoyed looking...More

Unlike many castles or mansions, that have been converted into a museum, Fraeylemaborg still the breathes the original setting, thanks to the furniture and items from the past. We visited the castle on our way to Stadskanaal in Groningen. There is an informative paper guide...More

The tower and its farm are just a great (historic) place to be. It is built on a lordship, which is freely accessible (donations accepted). A small entrance fee is required to enter the tower. The tower has some changing exhibits, check their website to...More
