Muiderslot is one of the few castles that have luckily survived to the present day preserving their primordial look.
It looks just like a picture from a knights book: compact and graceful, with towers and loopholes, surrounded by a traditional moat with just one entrance and a bridge leading to it.
The year 1280 is believed to be the date of the castles foundation. Despite its impregnable look, the castle was never a military fortress. It was designed to be a customs house of a kind.
The suitable location – in the estuary of Vechte – allowed the castle’s first owner, count Floris, charge the ships passing by to get to the town of Utrecht. The greedy count met a nasty fate: he was killed by his own peasants. As the legend goes, his spirit is still roaming the castle.
Later, Muiderslot had to serve as a residence for monarchs (Albert, Duke of Bavaria, XIV), a literary salon for the author Pieter Hooft(XVI), and even a prison (XVIII).
Wonderful gardens surrounding the castle still preserve the atmosphere of Netherlandish Renaissance. The castle’s walls provide a marvelous view on the sea vastness and borderless fields!
The castle is widely popular as a wedding place. This historic place with wonderful nature is perfectly suitable for any couple’s special day!
