Nijenhuis Castle

We visited Kasteel Het Nijenhuis (The Nijenhuis Castle) today, one of the best preserved manor houses in the province of Overijssel. It is situated between the villages of Heino and Wijhe. Its history began in the late Middle Ages, the first record dating from 1382. The castle was occupied by various noble families, though after the estate had been sold by the Van Pallandt family in 1934, it fell into disrepair. On initiative by collector Dirk Hannema the castle was restored and converted into an architect-designed museum. Nowadays it is one of the locations of Museum De Fundatie. Besides the castle itself the statue garden is impressive, more photos will follow. 

The castle seen from another angle. Isn't the tree enormous!?

6 opmerkingen:

  1. A beautiful castle! That is quite an unusual tree.

  2. Actually, the tree totally steals the show.

  3. Leuk dat de laatste bewoner directeur van Bomans van Beuningen was. Die heeft heel wat leuke dingen in de collectie achtergelaten.

  4. The tree really is amazing, it has to be very very old.
    The castle is beautiful.


Don't be shy and leave a comment. I'd love to read what you think!
