Amsterdam: Entry Ticket to Muiderslot Castle

1. Amsterdam: Entry Ticket to Muiderslot Castle

Visit Castle Muiderslot and experience one of the oldest and best-preserved castles in the Netherlands. Marvel at the over 700 years location surrounded by water and gardens. The castle arose in 1285 and there are many stories to tell about its long and turbulent history. See the Muiderslot castle that has been a national museum since 1878. Before then, the castle was completely dilapidated and even came close to being demolished. Fortunately, that never happened and in 1878 the castle became one of the first national museums in the Netherlands.  Be inspired by the castle that was renovated thoroughly by the architect Pierre Cuypers, whom you may know from Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam and Amsterdam Central Station. See the collection that revolves primarily around two historical eras: the Middle Ages and the 17th century. Discover what life was like in these times when also the poet and writer P.C. Hooft lived at the castle. Some of the halls are arranged the way they were when he lived here.

What people are saying about Muiden

A beautiful, romantic overall impression with a beautiful, small garden from this period. Two audio guide tours of the castle, only the first of which is in German. The second only Dutch and English

Lovely castle. Get the audio guide for a lot of interesting stuff about defending the castle and life there. There are lots of very steep stairs - just be aware.

The castle is a gorgeous place to visit. Friendly staff and the audio guides are available in more than 5 different languages! Unique experience!!

Visiting the castle transports you to another time. There is like a girl and you listen to the birds and enjoy the view.

Very nice and very clean place. Each piece tells a story.
