    A very romantic location for an event or a wedding!
    A fortification is known to have stood on this location in 1250 and in 1631 it became the building as it is today. The castle was never sold. During all the centuries of its existence it has always been inherited from one family member to another.

    The family names are still well known today. The first owners of the 1631 were the Van Wassenaer family. The castle was also inherited via the female line with such grand surnames like: Torck, Van Neukirchen Nyvenheim, Steengracht and Schimmelpenninck van der Oije

    This castle is still privately owned and inhabited. That is why it is not always open to the public and the tours are strictly guided.

    The castle is open again for tours from 2 April 2011.
    The grounds however are open every day from 9-19.30 hrs (or until sunset).

    If you have planned a visit, then you can join the guided tours daily at 14 hrs or 15.30 hrs.

    Entrance fee for adults is 6 euro (children half price).

    On our way to Duivenvoorde castle, we stopped for lunch, a few hundred metres before taking the turn to the castle.
    The restaurant is right along the road, amidst fields and cows :-)
    Nice big outside terrace but looks good inside as well.
    It was quite busy with people on outings and some businessmen.

    Favorite Dish: We had a light lunch of chicken pastry and a drink. Total 14,40 euro for the two of us. Very agreable, all of it.
