Kasteel Huize Ruurlo
Kasteel Ruurlo is wonderfully located in a rich and varied landscape. One of the most beautiful castles in the Netherlands.
Today’s Huize Ruurlo dates back partly to the sixteenth century, but it was founded much earlier. The first record of the castle was as a possession of the Van Roderlo family shortly after 1300. The present castle comprises a hotchpotch of different styles, because the castle has been continuously added to over the years. Large sections of the medieval walls are still to be seen in the basement.
Since 27 June 2017, Kasteel Ruurlo has also been the backdrop for the work and life of the renowned modern realist artist Carel Willink.
