Huis Doorn

Reviewed By KeithJSullivan - Crawley, United Kingdom

I wasn't sure what to expect from Huis Doorn (we were taken there as a suggested place to visit) but it proved to be so very interesting. The place is bursting with history, the significance of which is astounding. The guide that showed us around spoke excellent English and the whole group were transfixed with the explanations given. This place is a treasure trove of history.

Pyramide van Austerlitz

Reviewed By Alesius1 - Stornoway, United Kingdom

Constructed in honour of Napoleon, in imitation of the Pyramid of Giza, this pyramid is made of earth and covered by grass. Metal stairs (steep!) go from ground level to the top where there is a stone-built tower. Interesting plaques give the history of the Pyramid and the era in which it was built (Dutch only). And arrows on the plaques helpfully indicate landmarks in the distance.

Leersumse Veld

Reviewed By hrn69 - maarn

Het Leersumse Veld is een parel op de Heuvelrug. Mooi, wijds, bij on-nederlands. Het doet denken aan delen van de Veluwe en de oevers van Zweedse meren. Ga vroeg op zondag of door de week, na 10.00 wordt het erg druk.

Reviewed By Hansje - The Hague, The Netherlands

The Netherlands National Military Museum tells the story of the Netherlands Army and Air Force over centuries. It's only a couple of years old and definitely on par with the some of the worlds best technological museums; e.g. the Smithsonian museums in Washington. Well worth more than one visit, suitable for all ages.

Amerongen Castle

Reviewed By culinaire88 - Amsterdam, The Netherlands

Interestingly thee Stable house is more well maintained (because they run is as a cafe now), than the interior of the main castle building. You castle entrance free is including the guided tour in Dutch, but they have some English subtitle video for you to watch and leaflet to read as you walk about the rooms they lead you to see. A lot of the original furniture were still there but quite torn looking, definitely the seat fabric were torn. Looking a little run down and sad. The castle ground looks well maintained, the orangerie is bookable for wedding parties. There are kitchen garden, green house, etc..

Castle Duurstede

Reviewed By Flyngdtchmn - Utrecht, The Netherlands

We visited Kasteel Duurstede today. While the park around and the castle itself look great, we realized the management rents this place for weddings and other organizations, so not only it was impossible to check the place from inside one guy approached us and let us know we should leave because of the wedding. Moreover, when there is such an organization they put some tables and parasols at the castle grounds and they do not fit with the character at all. In my opinion those type of cultural heritages should not be a toy for 21th century entertainment....What a shame...

Snack service to your chair and comfortable sofa style seats make this a first class cinema. The screens aren't the largest but the other amenities easily make up for that.
