Kasteel Engelenburg

Country Estate

This estate of more than 50 hectares has been open to the public since 1900. The Engelenburg Estate has been around for centuries, proven by the discovery of oak poles and foundations in the cellars of the castle dating back to the 8th century. Over the centuries, the castle has had many owners who have influenced the appearance of the estate. Around 1828 the estate was designed in accordance with English landscape styling. The winding path, large curved ponds and the unique visible horizon are typical for this style and are still present today.

In 1910, the Queen’s Commissioner of Gelderland became the owner of Groot Engelenburg. In 1911, he has a garden (designed by the famous landscape architect L. Springer) laid out on both sides of the driveway. After the war, the estate was owned by the Twentsche Bank (later ABN) and became the holiday resort for its employees. In the mid-seventies the estate was no longer used for this purpose and became vacant for many years. After years of decay it was turned into a hotel-restaurant in 1987. Many restorations and renovations have given the estate back its previous charm. Take a walk through the woods and park and you will fully enjoy the atmosphere of this magnificent and unique estate.
