Kasteel de Haar

Interesting
This enormous brick-built castle (the largest in the Netherlands),is surrounded by a moat and dates from the 14C and 15C. Burnt down by Louis XIV's soldiers, it was rebuilt from 1892 onwards by the architect P.J.H. Cuypers in the neo-Gothic style. The main building, enclosed by towers, is linked to a large entrance gate by a covered bridge. The interior houses the collections of furniture, Flemish tapestries (16-17C), Persian carpets, paintings and ceramics brought together by Baron Van Zuylen van Nyevelt.
