  • Informative, beautiful, in good weather ideal! Nice place to quietly soak up the history. Entrance not too crazy. €5,-for adults. There they maintain it beautifully....

  • The walking route to the castle already gives a good overview on the beautiful ruin. At the gate, my children could choose free dress clothes and attributes and then explore the ruin with them. Supercool! Brederode has on one side a pretty intact piece that is decorated (torture chamber, residence of the Lord etc) and on the other side a large part ruin where nature itself determines what happens to the space. I find that very charming at this ruin. Recommended!

  • Beautiful ruin that greats the feeling how it used to be in a wonderful way. volenteers whom are very friendly and eager to explain and tell you more. Will definitely visit again with the kids when they are a bit older. Check for the events that they do there for kids in advance.
  • Fantastic partly ruined, partly restored castle. I really liked the ruined sections as it allows your mind to create what it would have looked like which is fun. €5 entry is well worth it. Also had rather detailed map of what the water ways looked like at that time which shows you how long the Dutch have been battling with the ocean and reshaping the land they call their own, especially interesting to compare the old map with the current google maps and you will see how much "land" has been reclaimed from the ocean. Well worth a visit.
