Roam the formal gardens of Kasteel de Haar, and then head inside to admire the richly decorated and wood interior. Located just outside Utrecht, this medieval fortress is complete with ramparts, gates, drawbridges, and large gardens. It was fully restored and rebuilt in 1892 after a large donation from the Rothschild family, but previous structures on the land date back to 1391. The inhabitants, the Van Zuylen van Nyevelt family, passed ownership over to the foundation, but still reserve the right to spend one month at the castle per year. View the many pieces on display around the castle, all of which come from the Rothschild collection. Guided tours are available to see the kitchens, greeting rooms, and dining rooms, but are usually only conducted in Dutch.

Overall a recommendable experience. Well maintained and enjoyable castle, nice and knowledgeable staff shares anecdotes and facts about the castle and it's former inhabitants and guests. Bags/jacket can (bigger ones have to) be left in complimentary lockers. Fun and educational activities for kids are offered at a small extra. Nice gardens to walk. Very easy to get around. Several languages are catered for.
This is nice castle really close to Utrecht. Is a recently re-built castle, so what you see is not From 1200, but still it worth a visit. The garden is also really nice, and I think the best season to visit it is spring. Getting to the castle is really easy, because on Saturday and Sunday there is a direct bus (number 9) from Utrecht central station.
