Once a majestic castle, it is now just a ruin. Kasteelruïne Batenburg is one of the oldest castles in Gelderland, construction is said to have started as early as the year 527. As early as around the year 1080, the first written mention of the Lords of Batenburg was made. Castle Batenburg has been owned by several families over the centuries. It was also besieged several times and severely damaged. The final blow came in 1794 when it was completely destroyed by the French. Nowadays, you can visit the ruins with a guide.
