Fencing on the Castle estate

Always wanted to attend a fencing clinic? How cool is it to do this on a land gold of an ancient castle! During the clinic you will be guided by Dutch Champion Collin Oosthof. He has years of experience in epee fencing and will teach you the tricks of the trade during this activity. This activity can be booked in groups on our estate (€25 euros p.p).

Open castle day 2024

Once a year, during Pentecost, several castles in the Netherlands open their doors to the public during ”the Day of the Castle”. Experience and immerse yourself in the history of our Castle and enjoy the nostalgic atmosphere with various old-fashioned stalls and old costumes!

  • The bootcamp lasts 45-60 minutes
  • Different forms possible
  • Under professional guidance
  • Challenging but for every level
  • Price on request
