Spend the night in a castle
The history of the construction and inhabitants of the Castle Bergh dates back to the Middle Ages. Over the course of time, fires, wars, expansions and beautifications have changed the appearance of the castle. Once a medieval defensive fortress, the property was gradually transformed to become a beautiful castle.
A number of the original defense towers have been converted into luxury suites with modern facilities. At Castle Bergh, you really can spend the night in a castle. Located in the former coach house, Castle Café Heeren Dubbel serves everything from a cup of coffee to three-course menus and tastings.
Interior, weapons room, mint
The castle is decorated as an inhabited residence. The interior boasts works of art from the late Middle Ages such as paintings, illustrated manuscripts and sculptures. The medieval tower houses a weapons room, and offers beautiful views out over the surrounding area. In the Mint building next to the castle you can mint your own coins, under the guidance of a mintmaster (by appointment only).
