This site is about the medieval castles in the Netherlands.
In the 13th century, Florens V, Count of Holland, did build five fortresses in the northern region of (the present) Noord-Holland in the Netherlands. This to consolidate his conquest on the Westfrisians. Just one castle survived the ca. 700 years of history: the castle of Medemblik (Radboud Castle). The rest of them is completely vanished or nothing more then just a ruin is left. The site is interactive and describes (in Dutch) several historical and other interesting facts.

its doors. A copy of 12th century castle " Jemppe" in Belgium is constructed now in Holland, Almere ( near Amsterdam )

Slot Zuylen was built around 1520 on medieval remains. In 1752 the Slot was rebuilt into a stately country home on the Vecht. The Zuylen collection offers an overview of three centuries of residence by the Van Tuyll van Serooskerken family: porcelain, glasswork, paintings, furniture and wall tapestries. A number of rooms have been furnished as they were in the time when the well-known writer Belle van Zuylen was living in the Slot.
