Huis Bergh Castle - s-Heerenberg

N 51.8740603 / E 6.241629

In the early 12th century, there was a gentleman named Constantinus de Melegarde, who also called himself Constantinus de Monte or Van den Bergh. He was lord of the Land van den Bergh, which included ‘s-Heerenberg in the hilly Montferland. The Lords Van den Berg founded Huis Bergh at its current location in 1250. It was inherited by the Von Hohenzollern-Sigmaringen family in the 17th century, who sold it to the Twente industrialist Jan Herman van Heek in 1912. Van Heek restored the run-down castle to its former glory. Another restoration was needed after 1939 because a large part of the house was destroyed by fire for the second time (previously in 1735). The current Huis Bergh Castle is definitely worth a visit. It is home to a special art collection with a portrait gallery, Northern European 16th century paintings and early Italian masterpieces. Book the tower room for an unforgettable night at the castle.
