This was once a medieval castle with thick walls, three ramparts and three moats. You would think that it was easy to defend, but it was completely destroyed during a fierce battle between Gelre and the Oversticht (Overijssel). The current house, which was built in the 18th century, was sold in 1977 to the Geldersch Landschap & Kasteelen Foundation. Since then, the rooms have been refurbished according to their original functions.
