Attraction details
Owner description: 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.

This in origin medieval castle has been rebuilt in the 17th century to a luxurious house. Through the centuries the same family has been living here so the interior is furnished with rare original furniture and paintings. The gardens, partly formal, partly landscaped, are very nice for a stroll along the tall, old trees.

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.
