    Loevestein Castle, known thanks to Hugo de Groot, is a beautiful castle to visit. It has a history of about 650 years, across three periods. The middle ages, the State prison and the Dutch Water line. You get with your entrance ticket a key with which you can explore the Castle by presentations to boot. Also nice with children. Who can even dress up as the former Castle residents. Especially for children, the story is told in which they "escaped" from the bookcase may climb. Castle has been completely renovated and looks elegant. There is a tavern where you can eat and drink. Outside are several attractions for children such as get out, archery spin wool. On site are also soldiers cottages which you can watch. You can also make your wedding or another party on the lock. In the former Commander's House is even a real B&B located, where you can spend the night. As well as soldiers in a cottage. An important note in this story. The castle itself is not accessible for wheelchairs and strollers and also for people who are very useful i.v.m. the many steep stairs to be found in the route.

    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.
