Trompenburgh Estate - 's-Graveland
Trompenburgh Estate is one of the 100 most important monuments in Holland. The estate is named after the 17th-century admiral Maarten Tromp, who is known to be one of the most famous seafarers of the Golden Age. Trompenburgh Estate is surrounded by water and was built to resemble a ship. Tromp could see his guests arrive by water. The roof of his house was designed like a ship’s deck complete with railings and a watch out. From here he enjoyed views across the beautiful are of Gooi and the Zuiderzee. In fine weather, he could even see Amsterdam lying in the distance. A sight axis runs from the front to the rear of the house, and the building forms a formidable ensemble with the gardens. Today the house is used as office space, but group visits are possible at set times.
