We did this tour as a stop over during a drive from Amsterdam to Brussels. We loved this place. Easy to get into. We chose just to walk through on our own. There were guides around the property to provide information and context. Loved the history and connection with the rich and famous. Spectacular inside and out.

The venue is fabulous. The castle is truly an amazing place to visit, fully furnished. Convenient and very close car parking. Efficient and clean facility. Really recommended to spend a few hours in a timeless place.

So beautifully castle and park. Castle is bigger than I thought and every room has so many items.

Very beautiful castle. Too bad there are a lot of stairs. Not so suitable for the elderly.

The castle and grounds were lovely. The staff were very helpful. Was a lovely day out.
