Mattemburgh Castle & Country Estate - Hoogerheide

N 51.4552934 / E 4.311853

Mattemburgh Castle is well worth a visit. Not only is the building beautiful, the estate around it consists of magnificent gardens in several gardens. An impressive sight!

In 1807, at the time of the French occupation, Petrus J. Cuypers bought several pieces of land here and combined them into a large estate. Partly, it borders the Oosterschelde estuary.

Cuypers, married to Maria van Mattemburgh, was mayor of Bergen om Zoom between 1818 and 1827. The estate was given her family name. After Cuypers' death, the widow decides to build a white-plastered neo-classical country house in 1847.

The garden is redesigned in phases between 1843 and 1878. First, the English garden surrounding the villa. Then came the inner garden and finally the beautiful French garden with Orangery, which was extended with side wings in 1960. The flower bed in front of the villa, the Fürst-Puckler bed, is the only one in the Netherlands!

Put your bike aside for a moment to walk around the estate. There are two walking routes through the forest area, in the gardens you can walk freely. Regular guided walks are organised. Check out the website.
