Amerongen Castle Description

The Amerongen Castle was built in 1286. Originally it comprised of a wooden donjon, but later it was made of stone.

It houses an exceptionally rich collection of furniture, paintings, wall tapestries, books, porcelain and glasswork from the 17th through to the 20th century. In the kitchen, hall, library, grand hall, dining room and bedroom the layout has remained intact since the departure of the last inhabitants.

The 12-meter high gallery with many family portraits is spectacular. The dining hall and gallery have been redecorated by the famous architect  P.J.H. Cuypers. 

The park and gardens at Amerongen

The park and gardens are open to the public, so that a visit to the castle can be easily combined with a walk along the borders, the rosarium, a children's house and beautiful trees, including a 300 year old oak.
