    The first part of Duurstede Castle, the square keep, was built in the 13th century. During the Renaissance, the bishops of Utrecht lived in the castle and the castle was modernized, which can be seen at the round tower. From the 16th century fell the castle and was used by the citizens of the area as a source of building materials.

    In the meantime, the castle is owned by the city and after restorations festivals and weddings take place today. The castle is open to the public on Sundays between 11am and 6pm. Further information: kasteelduurstede.nl

    Duurstede Castle is one of the oldest castles in the Netherlands and lies on a fairytale castle island in the middle of a park. Already the entrance - over a drawbridge over the moat - gives its visitors a real feeling of a castle. The castle has two towers with different rooms and a covered terrace. The story goes back to the early 13th century. Bishop David of Burgundy, the lord of the castle between 1459 and 1496, had the building thoroughly rebuilt. Today, the castle is the venue for weddings and (business) events. From April to November numerous public events are organized here.

    In principle, Kasteel Duurstede is rented out for weddings and other business events, but during the summer (from April 1 to October 1) you can enter the castle island from Tuesday to Sunday from 10:00 to 17:00. Provided there are no events or other gatherings taking place at that time!
