Fairytale castles

If you like castles, you have come to the right place in the Heerlen area. Castle Strijthagen in Welten is a rectangular building that dates from the 14th century. Especially in the 19th century, the castle was extensively renovated, so that it hardly resembles the original castle. This castle cannot be visited from the inside. That is the case at Ter Worm Castle. The current castle was built in the 17th century on the site of its predecessor from the 15th century. The castle was extensively renovated in the 20th century, because it had fallen into disrepair.
