De Haar Castle★★★★☆
De Haar Castle is one of the biggest and most luxurious castles in The Netherlands. The current buildings, all built upon the original castle, date from 1892 and are the work of Dutch architect P.J.H. Cuypers, in a Neo-Gothic restoration project funded by the Rothschild family.
Few castles in The Netherlands can equal De Haar for its ideal image of a medieval fortress with towers and ramparts, moats, gates and drawbridges. The interior of the castle is decorated with richly ornamented woodcarving, which reminds one of the interior of a Roman Catholic church.
Surrounding the castle there is a park that contains many waterworks and a formal garden which reminds one of the French gardens of Versailles. De Haar Castle ranks among the top twenty most visited Dutch museums.
