The castle is in superb condition. You are allowed to go in almost all of the areas, certainly enough to feel as though you have seen the entire castle. There are some steep stairs, and you go up several floors, so be in shape. There...More

Muiderslot is a bit tricky to get to but we found the trip well worth it. (We took the train to Weesp, then a bus, then walked through a charming town to get there.) This place is wonderfully kid-friendly (though there's plenty for adults to...More
