Overview
More
The first mention of Middachten appears in the year 1190, and although the castle dates from the early Middle Ages, the house in its present form was built towards the end of the 17th century and still includes some medieval parts. Middachten is unique in that it is still a real, working estate. Besides the castle, park and gardens, the estate also includes farms, woods and agricultural land. The Middachten gardens came into existence at the beginning of the 18th century. Shortly after the rebuilding of the castle was completed in 1697, a formal baroque garden was laid with box hedge parterres. In the second half of the 18th century fashions and the taste of the inhabitants changed and the gardens were altered in English Landscape style. The gardens as you see them now came into being around 1900, when they brought back garden elements of the former baroque style into the landscaped gardens. B&B: there are three stylish double rooms above the coach house, each with its own character.

Kasteel Middachten offers an escape from the everyday world. Though out the year there are numerous activities that are held at this castle. But I love biking to it and then walking through the gardens.

We only visited the garden, not the castle. There are not many special species, but the garden is very well designed and maintained. The rose garden is sublime.

Middachten castle is more like an outside mansion now, since the medieval castle was burned down by retreating French troops, like so many other castles in the Netherlands. There are beautiful gardens around, and the old vehicles and horse gear displayed in the stables are...More

This castel is well.maintained a surely worth your visit. We went here on various occasions with friends and family. Once and a while they organize a horse carriage show, which in itself is very interesting. The gardens are well kept. Friendly reception.
