Nederland - Kasteel Vorden

Nederland - Kasteel Vorden
Castle Vorden was first mentioned in a deed from 1315, in which ‘Steven van Vorden’ the castle and outbuildings gave to his uncle, Dirk van Vorden.

The castle probably dates from the 13th century, but it was very different from today. The square tower was certainly part of the medieval building, but the present castle for the most part was built in the 16th century. This square shape was then common. The castle lost in the course of centuries its defensive function and was rebuilt in the 19th century into a mansion. In 1873, the entrance was moved to the northern wing, with a wooden bridge across the moat.

The castle was left to decay after the World War II until restoration took place in 1976 and it became city hall of the municipality of Vorden. In 2004 Castle Vorden was sold to a private invester, who restored the house to its former glory. Since then the castle is used as a wedding venue and hotel.

Castle Vorden is one of the eight castles/mansions in and a round Vorden. There is a special bike route along these castles.

Impresionante castillo, la descripción y comentario es perfecta, muy grata e ilustrativa. La foto es preciosa, recogiendo bien ese ambiente de luz tenue, escasa del corazón del otoño. Una gran imagen, sin ninguna duda. Mis felicitaciones. Eduardo

Deze ging eigenlijk 'automatisch'. Dit was zo'n beetje de enige plek waar je fatsoenlijk zicht had op het kasteel; met als bonus dan ook nog het fraaie namiddaglicht.
