Slot Zuylen

Located near the Vecht, this solid medieval building is flanked by four octagonal towers. In the 18C, it was converted. Belle de Charrière, a literary lady and feminist well before her time, was born here in 1740. The castle brings together many old objects, furniture, a well-stocked library and porcelain from China. Some paintings, books and engravings remind us of Belle de Charrière. In the garden, notice the very attractive undulating wall from 1740.
