Zwaluwenburg country house - 't Harde
Zwaluwenburg lies on the transition from higher to lower ground. So burg or mountain applies in that sense. Whether swallows refers to the bird species or something else is not known. Previously, Wijnbergen castle stood there, and Zwaluwenburg is built on its foundations in 1728.
It became a block-shaped country house connected by quarter-round wings to two rectangular building houses on a moated house island. The client is Anthony Zwier van Haersolte, lord of Eisen, Zwaluwenborg, Bredenhorst and Staverden. Parts of the layout remain to the north and west of the house and the line of sight in front of the house. The grove to the south of this meadow is called Little Switzerland, in keeping with the landscape style, due to the differences in elevation introduced.
