Amerongen Castle (Dutch: Kasteel Amerongen, [kɑsteːl amɛrɔŋə(n)]) is a castle in Amerongen, the Netherlands. It was built between 1674 and 1680, on the site of a medieval castle that had been burned down by the French in 1673. The gardens still contain historic elements such as a conservatory dating from the 1890s. In 1918, the former German Kaiser Wilhelm II signed his abdication here and stayed till 1920, when he moved to Huis Doorn.

  • Quite nice place to visit and spend some time over there. The guide is in every room and answers all your questions. Nice history of castle(house).
  • Great experience. The guides and hosts really made all the difference. You can feel the passion with which they talk about the rich history and little fun facts about the castle.
