Loving whoever you want— that isn’t and wasn’t always easy. This guided tour will tell you more about love, lust and LGBTQI+ at Muiderslot castle. You’ll also come to know some bedroom secrets from times long past. Things were less prudish than we may often think…
The Muiderslot is over seven hundred years old. Over all those years, the castle has been regularly repaired, rebuilt, redecorated, and expanded—from a heavily guarded military fortress to a luxurious residence, to the museum it is today. During the guided tour, you’ll look for the traces of seven hundred years of construction activities. Are you ready?
Amsterdam castle Muiderslot is inextricably linked to the surrounding water: the moat, the river (Vecht) and the sea (the former Zuiderzee). This tour will let you explore all sorts of things about the relationship between the castle and the water. For example, how was the water used as a defence? The tour also takes you across the old seawall that has protected the castle from wet feet for centuries.
We offer a separate tour for the blind and partially sighted. We’ll take you on a tour and let you hear, feel, taste, and smell the castle and gardens. The thick walls, damp dungeons, worn stairs, the wind on top of the castle walls, the fragrant herbs in the garden, and much more! (available on request).
