Assumburg Castle - Heemskerk

N 52.5051433 / E 4.6851173

Assumburg was built in the 13th century. It had to keep out the grasping West Frisians, but a real siege would probably not have survived. It does have the strong appearance of a castle, but the walls are thin. After Jean Deutz bought the castle in 1694, he had a beautiful garden laid out in the landscape style. The house and gardens deteriorated in the 19th century, but in 1911 it became state property. By converting it into a youth hostel, the castle was restored to its former glory. The gardens, too, have been beautifully restored with an orchard, herb garden, rosary and period garden.
