Het Muiderslot Visit the website
The Muiderslot is one of the best preserved medieval castles in the Netherlands. It was built around 1285 by Count Floris V, as one of the castles to keep North Holland under control. Ten years later the count was kidnapped and taken to Muiden. After a few days of imprisonment, his captors decided it was no longer safe and took Floris with them. When enraged farmers tried to free him, Floris was murdered.
