Create an itinerary including Muiderslot
Just a short distance from the bustling, modern center of Amsterdam, you can step into a medieval world at Muiderslot. The castle, which dates to the 14th century, was built to protect the important water trade route to Utrecht. Through the subsequent centuries, it served as a private residence and later a prison. One of the castle's most famous owners was 17th-century poet, historian, and playwright Pieter Corneliszoon Hooft. Now a museum, the castle has been restored to its 17th-century atmosphere, with authentic furniture, arms and armor, and examples of everyday life at the time. You can take a guided tour, or visit the castle's website to download a mobile guide app. Using our online itinerary creator, Muiden attractions like Muiderslot can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • Nice little castle in a small peaceful town. You will need about a couple of hours if you want to relax and walk around. Best way to reach is to take the sprinter from Amsterdam to Weesp and bus 110.....  more

  • Super place. The parking place can be accessed until the entrance of the castle. The castle is very beautifully maintained. There is a lot for the kids to explore and learn regarding the king that ruled during 1500. There are nice parks and walking paths around the castle where you can spend time with family in eating and drinking together. Ensure to walk through the little peaks from where you can enjoy the green and natural background of Muiden.
  • Lovely place to spend the day with kids. Age 3-8 were interested and enjoyed the nice audio presentation by themselves. The surrounding is beautiful, and we spent at least 2 hours outside just running around. We also ate some veggie sandwiches in the restaurant near the castle. Finished the trip with a relaxed time in the castle gardens with a free activity for the kids - drawing the flower of the garden. Surprisingly they all played along and really enjoyed it.
