    Currently the castle is used as Stay Okay Hostel (that's the name of the Dutch youth hostels). A great and unique place to stay.

    Behind the castle is a forest in which small (r) children can romp and climb to their heart's content.

    The castle Westhove was first mentioned in documents in 1277, their exact date of construction is unclear. The medieval structure of the castle suffered particular damage in the 80-year war, when the building was first in Spanish hands and conquered by the Watergeuzen in 1572. In the following years, the castle was rebuilt to a summer residence, so that today, despite the rather medieval appearance, only the lower walls of the towers and parts of the residential buildings of the old castle belong. Today, the complex is divided into the water-repowered core castle with two flanking towers, three building wings and a spacious courtyard. The former fourth wing has completely disappeared. North is a U-shaped outer bailey and a few meters west an orangery, which today houses the Museum Terra Maris. There is a hostel in the main and outer bailey. It is also noteworthy that there is a walk-in replica of a moth on the outdoor area of the museum. These early to high medieval tower hill castles were in surprisingly high numbers on the island.
