Castle de Haar has an impressive history. It is the most luxurious castle in the Netherlands. The first building is dating back probably from the 12th century.

In 1449 it came, through marriage, into the van Zuylen family and has stayed so ever since until it was handed over to a foundation in 2000. In 2012 also the impressive complete art collection came into the possession of this foundation.

It was Baron Etienne van Zuylen en his wife Baroness Hélène de Rothschild who reshaped the estate in a ferry-tale residence from 1892-1912. The family, their children and grandchildren lived  in France but came back every year in September with famous house guests like  Brigitte Bardot, Yves Saint-Laurent, Coco Chanel, Pierre Bergé, Maria Callas, Roger Moore, John Collins and many more.

Castle and gardens are open to the public.

De Haar is also a venue for corporate and private events, such as receptions, weddings...
