We did not get into the castle since we arrived after it closed. However I would still suggest you might enjoy seeing the outside and it's location, if nothing else. It is lovely

I once visited the castle when it was closed, and I must have rated it higher, maybe 4 stars then. I found the exhibition quite disappointing. The knight's hall has a few historic items on display, but the hall itself is a bit underwhelming. Another...More

Nice place, great for photos and to get some Dutch culture. The moat and the harbour are really nice to walk around. But not much else to do...

We went to see this castle. The main gate and door were both opened. When we arrived at the reception there was nobody. After 10 minutes a staff member showed up totally surprised by our presence. She informed us that the castle was closed and...More

Cute all right but not much to see, nothing impressive, not much on display. The surroundings are nice with the port and the Ijsselmeer. A nice walk around is enough.

This castle looks good from the outside. It was built by count Floris V, so is old. Unfortunately it was closed. They should consider synchronizing opening times with the schedule of the steam tram from Hoorn.

Nice little castle with lots of information on the history of the place. Went with two small kids and they enjoyed climbing all the small steps. Good to spend an hour or two. Parking right out front (free).

An exposition about the castle history explained in a time line on the wall. Friendly people and for the kids there is a treasure hunt. Do not forget the canons outside

I am a volunteer in this Castle. So yes it is very important to me. The castle is very old. But great fun for adults and children. There is a hunt for the kids and in the summer season is always an exhibition. Also, there...More

The castle history is interesting for adults. The town was sacked and burned in the 16th century, but the castle held firm. The exhibition caters especially to children. In more recent times Rembrandt's Night-watch (nachtwacht) was taken out of its frame, rolled up in a...More
