I visited Hernen Castle in September 2001and I enjoyed my visit to this castle a lot. It is so old and still in its original state. There is no furniture at all in this castle though, but the architecture and still being in its orinal state is what makes it special.
A bathroom 15th century style :-) It is on the outside of the castle and it is nothing more than a hole in the floor. This parts of the castle hangs over the moat, so no flush toilet was needed. Simple but effective :-)
The wooden structure in one of the towers. Can you imagine, this is wood from the 15th century and it is still here!
Hernen Castle is a castle with a moat around it, dating back to the 14th century. Because this castle was hardly used since the 17th century it hasn't been changed at all since those days. It is quite an extra-ordinary castle in the Netherlands, because it has some unique architecture. It is one of the important examples of defendable houses in the Netherlands.
