Groeneveld Castle

Groeneveld Castle is an 18th-century country estate located in Baarn. Marcus Mamuchet had this country estate built in 1703 so he could have a place to go and forget about his hectic city life during the summer. After his death, it fell into the hands of Lucas van der Dussen, who built two semi-circular wings onto the castle. In the years that followed, the gardens and the park were developed further in English landscape style. You can also visit one of the three xylotheques, a collection of wood from various trees.
