Fourteen historic interiors from the 17th to 19th centuries are open to the public in Kasteel Duivenvoorde

An oasis of tranquility nestled in the busy Randstad metropolitan area is Kasteel Duivenvoorde (Castle Duivenvoorde). The rooms are furnished as if people still live here, and the residents have only stepped out for a bit.

The castle and its grounds date back to the 13th century. Interestingly, the castle and its contents are still owned by the same family and have never been sold. This means that a lot of information is still known about the previous residents.

Gold leather wallpaper and porcelain

Kasteel Duivenvoorde features fourteen historical interiors from the 17th to the 19th century. A tour of this national heritage site will take you through cozy spaces such as the library, a cabinet with gold leather wallpaper, the “Turkish” room with wicker wall paneling and an authentic mangle room for treating laundry. Family portraits line the walls and the rooms are filled with silver, Delft Blue and both Asian and European porcelain.

Stinzen plants (non-native plants)

The garden of Duivenvoorde, next to the eponymous castle, also carries the status of national heritage site. The landscape park, with its vistas and tracks and windy paths, sprouts stinzen plants: plants that are found specifically on historical estates. Experience this green oasis of tranquility in the middle of the hectic Randstad metropolitan area.
