Menkemaborg

Recommended
Initially fortified, this castle is now hidden by large trees. It is surrounded by moats; a garden in the Renaissance and Baroque styles typical of the Netherlands: a maze of greenery; orchards and kitchen gardens. In the 17 and 18C, two extension buildings were added to the oldest part of the building (14C), recognisable by its fewer and smaller openings. The furniture and interior decors illustrate the life of a noble family in the province.
