Loevestein Castle

The most famous castle in the Netherlands.

In 1361, a knight called Diederic Loef of Horne built a castle in the middle of the Dutch countryside where the Meuse and Waal rivers converged. At the time, this was a perfect location for levying tolls. Today, it’s the ideal spot for a day out with friends, family or colleagues. You can also use the castle as a venue for your parties or conventions, or even as a place to spend the night.

There’s something here for everyone, be it in the castle, on the outer bailey or in the garrison. In the museum, you can learn virtually everything there is to know about Hugo Grotius, the Middle Ages and the Hollandic Water Line. Learn about weapons and gunpowder, or get your feet wet battling high water in the cellars! Everyone gets a key to discover everything they could ever want to know about the castle. Find out for yourself!
