The Spyker Castle now houses a distinguished hotel, and in the castle cellar is the restaurant, where you can dine by candlelight. The castle includes a nice castle park, an old pasture avenue, a meadow on which every summer a craft market is held in the summer and the wedding tree, an old overgrown pasture.

The following is said about the wedding tree: In ancient times, two families in Spyker were in enmity with each other. Now it came to pass that the son of one family lost his heart to the charming daughter of the other family and desired her for the bride. This thought was so unbearable for the parents that the girl was promised to another. The night before the wedding, the girl managed to escape from her parents' house and meet her sweetheart at the designated place, who had been waiting for her there every night. The lovers fell weeping and miserably complaining about their misfortune. Straight ahead there was a flash of lightning and an old pastor, who was never seen again, appeared. He took the hands of the two lovers and trusted them before God. Then the newlyweds slumbered gently. The next day, to their great astonishment, they were joyfully received by both parents. But at the place of this wedding, the wedding tree grew. It is still said today that he brings eternal happiness and eternal fidelity to the couple who walk through the midst of their hearts full of love on the wedding day. (Sob, where have I laid my handkerchiefs back)
