On the edge of the village amidst the greenery, the majestic Amerongen Castle still exudes the atmosphere of yesteryear. Amerongen Castle is the most beautiful Dutch castle from the Golden Age thanks to the original condition of the Huys, the gardens and the collection. This cultural-historical monument has a rich family history of 700 years. Its inhabitants played an important role in national and European history. Godard Adriaan van Reede (1621-1691) was a key figure in the revolt against French rule. In retaliation, Amerongen Castle was set on fire by the French in 1673 and later rebuilt by his wife Margaretha. The German Emperor Wilhelm II (1859-1941) lived at Amerongen Castle for a year and a half and signed the act of abdication here in 1918. Top pieces are family and officer portraits, a B? Tz cabinet organ, a Louis XIV four-poster bed, gobelins and two marquetry sets by cabinetmaker Jan van Mekeren. The castle is surrounded by historic gardens and is located at the foot of the picturesque village of Amerongen. Visit the castle and walk through the beautiful castle garden where you can have a fantastic picnic in the summer.
