The first castle on this site was built around the year 1300 by Count Reinald I of Gelre. He wanted to develop the estate and the area around it into a city, but that did not work for a long time. In 2012, Staverden was eventually named the smallest city in the Benelux with just over 50 inhabitants. The current castle dates partly from 1853 and partly from 1905. It is built on the foundations of the previous castle from the 18th century. In total there have been four different castles on this place. It is not possible to view the castle from the inside, but the estate itself is freely accessible to stroll over.
