  • Nice to see 12 Euro seems to be a little much. But everything looked very good preserved and maintained!
  • Rich with history, from the 15th century to the early 20th with the visit of Kaiser Wilhelm II, where he abdicated. Some items inside the castle aren't in great shape any more, and to further preserve them, climate is strictly regulated. Beware that in the winter, it is very cold inside! You can only go in with a guided tour, which is included in the ticket price; I believe the last opportunity is 4pm. The museum is also covered by the national museum card. Friendly staff and nice grounds as well. Museum café is superb!
  • Beautiful castle and gardens. The history goes back to the middle ages, but the medieval castle was burned to the ground by French king Louis XIV. The 'new' castle dates from around 1680 and was redecorated by architect Cuypers around 1900, in which state it now can be seen. A lot of restauration has been carried out during the past years, but they are not there yet... Gives a realistic view on the high costs and efforts that comes with old houses though. Castle and gardens are however lovingly maintained by 'angels' and 'garden gnomes', who do a great job. Our guide was well informed, but a bit in a hurry (so I did not have the time to see everyting I wanted to see) due to the group that was to follow ours (probably a private tour followed by a party). Also a very fine location for weddings. Concerts (early music, jazz) are being organised at the castle grounds as well as fairs.
  • Really nice castle. With plenty of hiking routes around the old city of Amerongen.
  • Nice guided tour of 1,5 hour
