We visited this castle a few times already and it is definately worth a visit. There is a guided tour every hour. The castle is lovely decorated and the surroundings are relaxing and beautiful. There is a nice restaurant for lunch with a terrace at the courtyard. Little downside is the fact that there are lots of marriages held here so be sure to inform yourself when you go visit because some parts can be closed.

Attended a wedding, which was absolutely beautiful! The entire estate is romantic. The grounds are well maintained, the staff is friendly and the castle itself pretty. We didn't take the official tour, but the wedding was held on the main floor and the lower floor along with the terrace area. Although the castle is smaller than one would vision for a castle, I would recommend visiting if you're into history and castles. :0)

The castle looks like something walt disney would have come up with but its a real castle!
Its a lovely small moated castle. Its free with the museum kart & well worth the visit.
We walked around it with a tablet each, in English. You access quite a few rooms both state & servant & climb 1 of the towers.
Free parking & a nice walk (for our dogs) around the moat outside the walls.

Kasteel Heeswijk is a little, fairy castle in the south of the Netherlands. The main building and the small Italian garden are surrounded by water. The interiors are completely furnished, noteworthy are the Chinese dining room, the library with its big collection of history books, the sleeping rooms and the walls of the stairs covered with Dutch faience’s. An audio guide in English is available. All the staff is very kind. There is a little brasserie at the entrance but it was reserved for a private event that day. The visit is highly suggested.

It was a lovely friday when my husband and I decided to go here. Our son (3) was at school and we had some time on our hands. I always wanted to go, but never made the time for it. Until now. We took the guided tour, but you could also borrow a tablet and move around independently. For the kids the latter was rather attractive.
We had a lovely lady showing us the castle and telling al sorts of little details and we had a blast.
We could not see the big hall outside, because there was a wedding going on. But what a lovely venue!
We will certainly return here one day.

I visited Kasteel Heeswijk on a solo journey in early January 2019. It was a crisp and sunny day which made for perfect touring of the castle exterior and grounds. The drive to the Kasteel is quite scenic through a small village. Parking was free the day I visited and located close to the castle entrance. There may be additional parking that is a further walk away.
There were barely any tourists the day of my visit, I felt like I had the grounds practically to myself.

Car parking is on a grass field, on the left hand side of the road, 650m away from the castel and costs EUR 2. In was a pleasant walk, the weather being warm and sunny.
It is possible to climb the staircase in the tower, but it is rather narrow: this can become a problem when someone is coming from the other direction.
Interesting setup of the buildings: on two islands connected by a bridge. Castle looks great from any angle.

We have told the staff that they really need to advertise more - most people have never heard of this castle and that really is a shame, because it is one of the best preserved and maintained castles in The Netherlands. We visited this castle with our Dutch relatives, who had arranged an English speaking guide. It was an excellent visit and there even is a very good place for coffee and more on the premises.
