The oldest tree in Holland
Since 1280, the castle has grown to become a picturesque complex of buildings with a ward and an outer ward. During the Second World War, the castle suffered major damage, and after undergoing restorations for a period of 37 years, it is once again the beautiful water castle it used to be.
One of the oldest trees in Holland is also located on the Castle Doorwerth grounds. The trunk of the Robinia (acacia) tree has a circumference of seven meters (almost 23 feet), and was planted around the year 1600. Two similar trees were destroyed during the Battle of Arnhem.
Activities at Doorwerth
The castle’s impressive great hall is available for small receptions, events and wedding celebrations. The tearoom in the outer ward and the restaurant in the coach house are also available for these types of receptions. The ward houses three museums: the castle museum with its beautifully decorated rooms, the Veluwezoom Museum, and the Nederlands Jachtmuseum (museum for wild game management).
