    The tour of the dozens of historical style-rooms with interiors from the 17th, 18th, 19th and early 20th centuries was very beautiful. I also found it interesting to hear the history of the in the 17th, 18th and 19th century converted Castle; originally a donjon Tower from 1250. There was a lot of information on particular paintings and the first inhabitants; the family van Wassenaer. Shooting within is only possible with permission but there is 2.50 for a photo-booklet for sale as souvenirs. The collection of 18th century Japanese and Chinese Imari porcelain and 18th century Dutch porcelain of Manifacture Lutterworth is impressive. But in a museum as a ceramics collection Rijksmuseum Amsterdam is more time to the painted details due to high rate of 1, 5 am tour. The Marot-Hall and the gold leather-Cabinet both from 1717 were the most spectacular interiors but there are also romantic 18th and 19th century bedrooms and a library and a boudoir. The tours are in the summer season and start to 1400uur and 15.30 except Sunday and Monday. The park is also very attractive and is open all year for 1 euro in the ticket-vending machine. I came there with an OV-fiets from Den Haag CS via Wassenaar but buses. The drive-avenue lined with old oak is long so count on a brisk walk from bus stop. There are organic summer vegetables for sale and the trail can go through to estate de Horsten to other side of the railway.

    The park surrounding the Castle duivenvoorde is well organized and very nicely refurbished. Very clear and yet varied, with beautiful ponds. There is now also a spacious car park, where a day ticket can be purchased. Throughout the year you walk here to enjoy the peace and nature in every season.

    So, I wouldn't really call it a castle in the way that a North American person might think of a castle. It's more of a huge country estate. Knowing that, it is a great day trip during the open house weekend recently. We had a great picnic lunch and enjoyed our tour.
