  • By boat from Woudrichem to Loevestein Castle is the ultimate way to arrive. From the river you will see the lock slowly approaching. Inside the walls you imagine yourself straight into a different world. Fun and educational for all ages

  • A castle rich in history, and the museum gives a quick crash course of important Dutch events. All printed signs are in both Dutch and English, as well as a few interactive exhibits, but spoken audio is only Dutch. This museum is extremely child friendly; there's plenty for kids to do, and the volunteers are also excited to involve them in stories and play games. Due to the stairs and walking, this is likely not suitable for elderly and the disabled. There's a simple cafetaria, but with decent food and coffee. It's possible to book a fancy room here for a "romantic weekend getaway"; check the site for details.
  • Interesting place to visit. Historical place. They also have guided tour through the castle but you can also roam the castle on your own. From time to time they organise events like historical battles.
  • This is a great place! We spend a full day here and had a wonderful time. Very nice staff, nice store, very educational. You need to walk distances and climb some steep stairs inside the castle. If you take the audio tour you will learn a lot. Nice tour for kids, very interactive, without making it too childish, so great for adults too.
  • Neat castle. Used as a prison so very basic. Well kept. Friendly staff. Tavern threw me off a bit. Expected an old school tavern feel and it was a more chic, high tea feel.
  • Awesome old castle with unbelieveble cool history, and in particular the story of one the most biggest persons in dutch history: Hugo de Groot
