Jonkheer Henri’s dream

Just 40 minutes from bustling Amsterdam a hidden gem awaits the visitor: Castle-Museum Sypesteyn. Set amidst 12 acres of formal gardens and parkland, the apparently mediaeval castle is the charming result of a young nobleman's dream. Jonkheer Henri van Sypesteyn believed that his ancestral seat had stood on this spot and it was his overriding wish, at the beginning of the last century, to rebuild the castle to honour his family and house and exhibit his impressive collections. Eastern and rare Dutch porcelain, clocks, weapons, and paintings by artists from Holland's Golden Age are among the items on display. He put his expert knowledge of historical gardens into the creation of an estate which seems to step right out of the 16th century; a garden complete with exotic trees, orchard, topiary, maze and small wood, an unexpected oasis. Sypesteyn, Holland's youngest castle, warmly welcomes its visitors to share in Jonkheer Henri's vision. A visit made complete with a tasty snack or meal in the café-restaurant.
