Culinary water taxi package

Loevestein Castle is one of the Netherlands’ best-known castles, thanks primarily to the spectacular escape of Hugo Grotius (Dutch: Hugo de Groot) from its prison in a book chest. Grotius was the greatest legal scholars that the Netherlands has ever produced.

After being used as a state prison, Loevestein Castle served a military role as a stronghold in the Hollandic Water Line complete with earthen walls, a double moat, an arsenal, a casemate and a garrison. The commander’s quarters in the fort have since been refurbished and turned into luxury accommodation with two suites and an upstairs room overlooking the medieval castle.

You’ll be struck by Loevestein’s history and ambiance the moment you step through its gates. Your host will welcome you and discuss any particular requirements. The same evening, you’ll be picked up by water taxi in front of the castle gates and taken to Woudrichem. There, a sumptuous, three-course dinner awaits you at Kruiden & Jasmijn. After dinner, you’ll be brought back home to the castle for a regal night’s rest.
