The building of the castle started in the 13th century. It was spared in the 17th century by the French because the Danish owner had obtained a sauve-garde, meaning that the French were not allowed to attach or demolish the castle. During the Second World War however, the castle was severely damaged but it is now restored to perfection.
The divorced wife of Willem Bentinck (first aid of William III who became king of England) lived here after her divorce and many travels through Europe, until she died.
To enter the castle you have to go over a drawbridge to get inside the castles walls. We were the only ones on the inner court; it looked quite romantic with the autumn sun shining on the castle. The castle dates back to the 13th century.
Favorite thing: I don't know why this photo came out all crooked. But notice the blue sky! It was the last sunshine of the day....
