Ammersoyen Castle walking route
- North Brabant
22.58 km (Approximately 05:38 u)
After a cup of coffee at Café restaurant Treurenburg, put on your walking shoes. First you walk along the south bank of the mighty Maas. Then you cross the Maas with a ferry, for a nice round on both sides of this turbulent river. You are here in the Bommelerwaard, which is embraced by the winding Maas and Waal. An island, as it used to be called. The waters were cursed when the land flooded again, but blessed when the harvests were rich. The route also leads you past Ammersoyen Castle, one of the best preserved moated castles in the Netherlands. During construction, the castle was located in or on the Maas, but in 1354 the course of the river changed. Since then, the main castle has almost always been surrounded by a moat.

Ammersoyen Castle was very popular due to its strategic location on the Maas. It was conquered in 1386 by Duke William I of Gelre, when the lord of the castle wanted to enter into an alliance with Joanna of Brabant. At the end of the fifteenth century it was sold to the lords of Arkel, lords of the count of Holland. After the Eighty Years' War (1568-1648), various noble families owned the castle as a residence. During the Second World War, the castle was so badly damaged that the nuns, who had lived there since 1876, had to move. After the war, the castle came into the possession of the later Geldersch Landschap en Kasteelen Foundation.
