Castles?

Postby lehrens » Tue Oct 31, 4:04 pm

We will be in AMS in Dec. have been many times before but this time we want to venture into the country some. Was wondering if anyone had some recommendations on castles in the area that might be worth a visit?

There are "castle-like" structures ringing the city. Old defensive posts that are within lovely biking distance.

If you have google earth (which I highly recomend that you do) heres some waypoints.

Muiden Castle, it's close to AMS and convenient to get to.
