Muiderslot Things to Do

  • Climb the South Tower (Zuidertoren)

    It's not a very large tower and unfortunately the views upstairs are limited by the narrow slits in the wall you can look through. They are protected by bits of glass which could do with a cleaning.

  • Watch the fish

    Are they the current defenders of the castle? These big fat fish? It's fun to watch them. I wouldn't know what kind of fish they are though (can someone enlighten me?) and if they're edible!Oh, I put this tip under whale-watching. Just a joke!

  • Visit the vegetable garden

    All sorts of known and lesser known vegetables are grown here in immaculate plots. You just get a craving to cook with them and eat!

    Muiden - Meet locals here!

    by egonwegh Updated Jul 4, 2008

    An apparently nameless fast food restaurant next to the parking lot at Muizenfort ("Mice Fortress"). Withing walking distance of the Muiderslot. Very laid-back atmosphere, you're bound to run into some silly hipsters here that are poking fun at each other ...

    Favorite Dish: French fries.

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    From Amsterdam Amstel station you can choose bus 101, 152 or 157. It's about 16 minutes to Muiden. It's a small town and it's no more than 10 minutes walk to the castle.
    The aforementioned buses ride 4x per hour from Mon-Fri, and 2x per hour on weekends.

Muiderslot Shopping

  • Castle recipes

    In the castle shop there are also little books with old castle recipes. For 2,.50 you can experiment to your hearts content!How about recipes for stewed cucumber, eel soup, almond cake, buttermilk sauce with bacon and boerenjongens (raisins in gin).

  • Buy seeds

    there's a little shop in the castle that sells seeds from plants grown in the castle vegetable garden. Just one euro per sachet. Should be fun to watch them sprout next year. I bought a few varieties of peas and beans. I'm hopeless at this sort of stuff but I like eating them.

  • To buy or not to buy a full ticket.

    If you visit the castle, you have 2 choices. Either a ticket for 7 euro (guided tour included) or a ticket for the garden, falconer and grounds (2,50 euro).Now if you're not sure that you'll do the guided tour, then do not buy the full ticket! You can enter the castle's center court but you cannot visit inside if you do not have the full ticket....

    Don't take the tour with the lady with the high pitched voice! With several tours an hour it would be better to wait a while for the next tour to start ...That's me after the tour in the central court yard.

    Favorite thing: Isn't this just beautiful? With the sunlight coming through, vibrant greens. The green corridor divides the herb garden (left side) from the vegetable garden.
