Duivenvoorde is a unique and still inhabited castle and estate, with its roots in the 13th century. Once, a large, square defence tower could be found here. The remnants of this tower can still be seen in the facade of the castle and the Voorhuis (front house). In the late Middle Ages, the need for living space grew, so around the tower, which continued to exist until the 17th several wings arose.
Duivenvoorde is photogenic. Not just the centuries-old castle, but also the estate surrounding it is worth mentioning. Here you can view several images of this green oasis of calm in the middle of the crowded urban agglomeration. Duivenvoorde features a beautiful, centuries-old art collection. The (family) portraits, prints, drawings, sculptures, furniture, porcelain, silver, costumes, books and the archive have been collected through the centuries by the inhabitants of Duivenvoorde. Take a look at the portraits online.
OIn time, the rest of the collection will also be digitised.
