    Haus Bergh is one of the largest and most important castles in the Netherlands. The history of the building and resident goes back to the Middle Ages. Nice for a visit for young and old with attractions for the youth.

    Huis Bergh is a castle in 's-Heerenberg in the Dutch province of Gelderland. It is one of the largest and most significant in the country and former ancestral seat of the Counts of the Bergh. From the 18th century the history of the county Bergh-s'Heerenberg was closely connected with the history of the house Hohenzollern-Berg.

    The history of the castle probably goes back to the beginning of the 12th century. At that time an artificial hill was built on a bog island, on which a wooden tower was built. At the beginning of the 13th century, the wooden residential tower was replaced by a round tower made of tuff, of which remains are still preserved in the wall of the main castle. The main remaining parts of the building date from the 14th to the 17th centuries. At the beginning of the Eighty Years' War, Huis Bergh had suffered great damage several times. In 1735 the castle burned down.

    In 1912, the textile manufacturer and art collector Jan Herman van Heek (1873-1957) from Enschede acquired the castle. Another fire occurred in 1939. The renovations began in 1939 and were completed in 1941.

    Here was the coin before. Some of the examples stamped here can be viewed in Huis Bergh. Today, the house houses a significant private archive.

    In Huis Bergh many paintings are exhibited - through the main building one can move freely with audio guide. With a guided tour, you can also visit the tower with the coin chamber and the armor chamber - just to be recommended for the view.
