This beautiful Medieval keep is surrounded by a moat that is fed by the Rhine and is only a short distance away from the iconic river’s western banks. Historians believe that Kasteel Doorwerth was built in the 13th century and that its original walls were likely made from hard wooden beams. This structure was burnt to the ground in 1260 by a Dutch nobleman from Vianen, but due to its strategic location, it was subsequently reconstructed and then reinforced with stone. Over the centuries buttresses and towers were added to the castle leading to its present form. Today it houses a museum and an exclusive hotel that can be rented out for weddings or other large celebrations. Furthermore, it is possible to book a stay in the gatehouse, which is also a part of the castle.
