Roam the formal gardens of Kasteel de Haar, and then head inside to admire the richly decorated and wood interior. Located just outside Utrecht, this medieval fortress is complete with ramparts, gates, drawbridges, and large gardens. It was fully restored and rebuilt in 1892 after a large donation from the Rothschild family, but previous structures on the land date back to 1391. The inhabitants, the Van Zuylen van Nyevelt family, passed ownership over to the foundation, but still reserve the right to spend one month at the castle per year. View the many pieces on display around the castle, all of which come from the Rothschild collection. Guided tours are available to see the kitchens, greeting rooms, and dining rooms, but are usually only conducted in Dutch.

Lovely castle with a nice garden and other surroundings. I'd reccomend to take a peek inside as well. I especially liked the stained glaswork of the windows. A must see when you're in the Utrecht... more »
Great sightseeing spot. The castle is great for a visit and the park is very nice for a walk around. It's quite far from city of Utrecht. From Rotterdam we took the train to Utrecht and then took a bus to Castle De Haar. You should go in the morning then you have more time to enjoy the place. Fantastic place for people who love castle and photo shooting.
Beautiful castle grounds with very rich (literally) collection of artifacts. Well maintained place. There is ample parking so you can bring your car. They have provided restaurant for bites and toilet which is useful. Worth exploring !
