The old ruins of the Castle stand proud - as they have been for centuries. Check out the history of this place! It is an interesting stop for a bike ride through the region.

Kasteel Brederode is situated in a beautiful landscape:just east of KENNEMER DUINEN nature reserve and north of green and residential BLOEMENDAAL village. After enjoying the ruins I hopped on my bike to the beach at PARNASSIA. On warm summer sundays nearby BLOEMENDAAL AAN ZEE becomes a clubbers paradise and music is heard in the nature reserve as well.
