The castle is one of the best preserved medieval castles in the Netherlands. Lodewijk (Louis) Berthout van Berlaer, Lord of Helmond, probably started building it between 1325 and 1350.

Nice castle to be slightly smaller than we expected. There was a nice interactive part for the kids (and adults!). Some parts translated into English which was fine for us. The staff is very kind and helpful

Nice visit. Beautifully restored castle, which dates from the Middle Ages. Interesting historical exhibition. Special features for kids. The visit of the castle can be combined with a visit of the Art Hall Boscotondo, just across the canal.

We visited the castle with a guide, who spoke about the history of the castle in many details. Beautiful building with a unique collection of furniture and utensils
