Kasteel Montfort

Kasteel Montfort dates from 1260 and was for centuries one of the largest castles in the Netherlands. It was built by Hendrik van Gelre, on a ridge in the watery Vlootbeek valley. Because of this location, the polygonal ground plan and the thick natural stone walls, it was practically impregnable. After Hendrik's death in 1285, castle Montfort belonged to the county of Gelre.

An impressive ruin with a visitor center in a restored castle tower is a reminder of this. In 2017 we will complete another restoration project: the magnificent 14th century vaults of the eastern cellars together with the stairwell and the southeast tower.

Be surprised by the fascinating past and the beautiful landscape of the 'Heerlickheit Montfort' castle. Creep in the dungeon. Enjoy the view from the Panorama Hall. Walk through the castle garden. Also discover the beautiful estates Rozendaal, Schrevenhof and Reigersbroek.

The castle was part of the Heritage Festival 2018.
Walking and cycling
A visit to Montfort Castle can be perfectly combined with an interesting walking or cycling tour through the Heerlickheit Montfort. For this purpose, four walking tours and four cycling tours have been developed, each with its own theme and full of interesting facts about the region around Montfort. The hiking routes vary in length from 4 to 6 kilometers, the cycling routes from 30 to 46 kilometers. After returning, a visit to the castle terrace is a nice ending.
