De Haar Castle - Haarzuilens

N 52.1214963 / E 4.9862723

De Haar, located close to Utrecht, is the biggest and most luxurious castle in Holland. It is one of the most significant historic country houses in Europe. De Haar has welcomed many famous guests, mostly movie and music stars and boasts impressive gardens and a prestigious collection. Between 1892 and 1912, architect Pierre Cuypers, known from the Rijksmuseum and Amsterdam Central Station, was instructed by Baron Etienne van Zuylen van Nijevelt to build a new castle on the remnants of the old derelict castle. As the noble owners also wanted to receive their friends in the new castle, it was equipped with the latest comforts. Warm and cold running water, central heating, electricity, a Turkish bath, a hypermodern kitchen and a lift. These were innovations sure to impress in those times. A visit to De Haar is like traveling back in time to the glorious days of the early 20th century. The breathtaking wealth of the international jetset who visited De Haar stands in stark contrast to the otherwise understated luxury of the Dutch estates, castles and country houses. Brigitte Bardot, Joan Collins, Yves Saint Laurent, Coco Chanel, Maria Callas and Roger Moore; just a few of the many famous guests who have visited Castle De Haar.
