Just a short distance from the bustling, modern center of Amsterdam, you can step into a medieval world at Muiderslot. The castle, which dates to the 14th century, was built to protect the important water trade route to Utrecht. Through the subsequent centuries, it served as a private residence and later a prison. One of the castle's most famous owners was 17th-century poet, historian, and playwright Pieter Corneliszoon Hooft. Now a museum, the castle has been restored to its 17th-century atmosphere, with authentic furniture, arms and armor, and examples of everyday life at the time. You can take a guided tour, or visit the castle's website to download a mobile guide app. Using our online itinerary creator, Muiden attractions like Muiderslot can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

Both the gardens and the castle itself are well presented. The audio tour is very valuable addition. Due to the many steps (some are awkward by design, I leaned today), a visit to the castle itself.... more »
Really great place to visit. The castle is nicely restored and is an interesting museum. It also has a nice landscape and a garden. Great example of historical fortifications and part of dutch water line. Great place to go to on weekends by bike. Only 18 km from Amsterdam. Free for museum card owners.
Nice spot. We did not have time to go inside but enjoyed relaxing on the grass. We got the chance to find an army car near.
