We will journey to the best medieval castle in the Netherlands! We will meet in the morning and travel either by Ferry, bus or train to the castle where we will explore the castle and the grounds (details will be forthcoming once I get more information about travel options).
Built around 1285, this is a very well-preserved historical marvel listed on UNESCO's World Heritage list. Beautiful gardens surround the castle. Interesting features include a Knight's Hall, Castle Chapel, Towers, armory and a dungeon. There is even a real moat around this castle!
As an additional bonus, by popular request there will be a photo contest! The contest is strictly voluntary and is NOT mandatory, although everyone is welcomed to participate.
Photo Contest Theme: Frozen In Time- Connecting Our Past To The Present.
Following the event, I will create a separate meetup event in which people can upload the photos they wish to be considered for the contest. I will create a doodle poll for voting and post the link on the meetup photo contest page and everyone will have one week to cast their votes.
Photo Contest Prize: To Be Determined
Each member will be responsible for paying for their own transportation to and from the event as well as admission to the castle. According to the website, admission to the castle is free for Museumkaart holders.
The official meeting point is at the Castle at Noon, when it opens. However, there are different options for transportation. Choose whichever suits you best! Details are in the remarks below... please scroll down.
Won't you join us on an exciting adventure in history?
Thank you to Remmelt for the meetup suggestion!
