If you find yourself in Helmond then this is worth a visit. But its only ok, a beautiful looking castle, with some good information and facts inside. But if you've been to one castle then its all the same sort of stuff. I feel this place caters to children more. Im sure its really fun for them and more interesting. At €10 a ticket I thought it was a rip off, But! You also get acess to another gallery/museum across the road with that ticket, so its ok.

It was a nice castle be little smaller than we expected. There was a nice interactive part for children (and adults!). Some parts translated into English which was good for us. Staff very friendly and helpful. Good for a rainy day.

We arrived a little over four and were immediately told that the would close at five and we had to rush. They then told us we could not bring our bags, they had to be stored in the lockers. Informing them that I did not bring a one euro coin for the key to lock, they looked at me as if I came from another planet. They could have loaned me a coin because it is returned after all. Anyhow, that is just a small thing. The lady guide that gave the tour had a lot to say, but in many occasions what she told was different from what was written next to the object. Leaving me to believe that she made up a lot of what she claimed to be fact. Or, all the signs need to be replaced. She also reminded us numerous time that the closed at five and that we needed to hurry up.

All in all, not a nice experience.

Very nice place to visit. Just a beautiful castle and green environment to visit. Just on the corner is a good and cosy restaurant. The center is at 200 / 300 meter, there are many shops and cafe’s.

not much to say, the castle is pretty nice, it is mostly used for wedding and sinterklaas, which makes it a bit uneasy to consider it a real attraction, but definitely deserve a visit

The around 700 years old Castle in the city centre of Helmond leaves lovers of history, museums and festivities amazed. The castle is beautifully renovated in the original style. The museum tells the fascinating story of the castle and its owners.
For the city of Helmond this Helmond Castle represents pride, independence and a retreat.

Every November and December the Catle is turned into an interactive children recreation an imagination area as the 'Home of Sint Nicolaas'. People from all over The Netherlands (and beyond) visit the Castle (get a ticket on time) by the ten thousands.

Imagine living in a 700 year old retreat, fighting of intruders. Enjoy historic exhibitions or meet Sinterklaas in his unique Home Castle.

You will be amazed!

This is a fabulous looking castle from the outside complete with bridge over it's moat to get to it. The moat encircles the whole of the castle but a footpath to it's outside still lets you walk all the way around it. There is a small courtyard inside where access is then gained to it's interior and museum for 10 euros. Whilst the inside does give good history about the castle, I did not find it that engrossing and worth the entrance fee.
