Kasteel Heeswijk Things to Do

    Between the castle's main buildings as well as between the castle and its annexe, are beautiful squares. The building on the left (first picture) shows the hall where wedding ceremonies take place nowadays.
    As a result of a will, the annexe was the only part of the castle where people lived in the 20th century. The descendants were literally banned from their family's own property!

    The recent 19th century extensions of the Heeswijk Castle are designed by the famous Dutch architect Kuipers, who also designed the Rijksmuseum and Central Station in Amsterdam as well as the Lambertus Church in Veghel (the latter is illustrated in the Veghel section of my website). Typical for his work in the Neo-Gothic style and the use of bricks. The moat around the castle was not affected by the extensions.

    The Heeswijk Castle is situated on a beautiful estate with long lanes with full-grown oak trees on both sides. The buildings on the estate all have the same colour shutters. The estate is very suitable for short and medium length hikes. It is free of motorized traffic except for the access road. From Heeswijk Castle estate, it is possible to walk to the extensive Heeswijk forestry which starts about 2 km east of the estate.
