A key to the castle. Everyone gets one! But a key to Loevestein Castle is something very different. Everyone who visits our museum gets a personal key with which they can explore the castle on their own, allowing them to view countless exhibits and listen to tales told from every perspective imaginable.
You’ll also find information folders in all the castle’s rooms.
As one of our younger visitors, you can also listen to our Hugo4Kids story and actually crawl into a book chest similar to the one that Hugo escaped in! You can also dress up as a knight or a damsel in the castle’s cellars.
Loevestein is also an archaeological site. Using your personal key, you can visit the Unearthed! exhibition where you’ll find remnants left behind by the castle’s former inhabitants. They tell the stories about life in centuries past.
Presentations and storytelling are held in both Dutch and English.
