We went to open monument day in the Netherlands where all monuments, museums and government buildings were open to the public, the 2nd Saturday in September. Although it was crowded the grounds are huge with a reflecting pool and chapel. There is rose garden and maze, an area for friendly deer and walking paths everywhere. Even a wishing well, ok so it is filled with pebbles. Cinderella watch out, this castle is real. It is still occupied by the Baroness for one week in September and again in December. The interior is oozing with luxury and the furnishing rival that of any other castle in Germany.
We went with our son who was bored with the inside until we pointed out the swords and other pieces of battle attire. He loved the maze which we got lost in and feeding the deer. There were a lot of activities for children because of the open day. He got to scoop in reflecting pond, build a hut, watch a little theater.
We took a free 15 minute tour of the first floor offered during monument days. We plan to return for picnics on the ground which are free.
On a side note, free toilets!
