Castle de Haar is a real fairy-tale castle, complete with towers, red-white shutters, a moat and a drawbridge. You can take long walks in the castle gardens with ancient trees, ponds and long lanes.
Located just outside of Utrecht in castle village Haarzuilens lies the six-hundred-year-old estate de Haar. A beautiful estate with ponds, bridges and lovely gardens that have been shaped in both the English landscape style and the clean-lined French baroque style. Of course, the imposing castle is an absolute eye-catcher. You can also view the inside of the castle. The personnel rooms have been open to the public ever since April 2018. You’ll get a good impression of how servants and chambermaids lived and worked here.
Hey, did you know?
The most important annex of the castle is the Châtelet, also called the gate castle. Originally, it was mainly intended for installations, but later the building was also used as employee housing. Nowadays, the family of baron Thierry van Zuylen regularly stays in the gate castle. During a tour, you’ll learn all about the now deceased baron and his family.
