Middachten Castle

Middachten Castle - De Steeg

N 52.0190014 / E 6.0696987

On the transition from the high southern Veluwezoom to the low floodplains of the IJssel stands Middachten Castle. A castle and fore-castle surrounded by moats and surrounded by gardens, partly enclosed by moats and partly by garden walls. The name is mentioned as a name of a person earlier than the name of this house: In 1190 a Jacobus de Mithdac is known and in the beginning of the 14th century a Everardus van Middachten.

Middachten was never sold, but always inherited in both male and female line. The castle is of medieval origin, but is repeatedly destroyed and rebuilt in a modified form. The castle acquired its present form in the 17th century and was then not substantially altered for more than three centuries. The rebuilt house is surrounded by a geometric, late Dutch-classical garden layout at the end of the 17th and the beginning of the 18th century.
