Oud Poelgeest Castle

In Oegstgeest, just outside Leiden, lies the historic Oud Poelgeest estate. Oud-Poelgeest Castle was built in 1640 and is surrounded by deciduous wooded grounds and a number of annexes. The hotel with à la carte restaurant is located in the authentic carriage house. While surrounded by greenery and trees, you are still near the bustling city, which can also be reached over water. From the dock behind the castle, you can directly sail from the estate into Leiden’s canals.
