Castle De Haar

hz4

Originally medieval castle De Haar (in Haarzuilen, a few km far from Utrecht, The Netherlands) was first mentioned in 1391 and almost completely destroyed and abandoned in 1482. Approx. a hunderd years ago it was bought by eccentric Baron Etienne van Zuylen van Nijevelt, who completely renovated it to its nowadays apperance. The castle is almost a kitschy example of how a lot of money can help you fulfill your life dream…

One thought on “Castle De Haar

  1. Well now, here’s another place we must visit. I like that you also added the earlier images of the castle as it once was, thereby providing history and the look of the times. Nice work! Again, Eva, I appreciate your peeking at my site and liking the posts “Pollen Paint”, “Botanical Synapses”, and the more recent “Variations on HDR”. Thank you!
