Estate

Many stories to be told
  • Both the castle and the park of Duivenvoorde have the status of national monument. The park with its magnificent views, lanes and meandering paths has a remarkable flora and fauna. There are many kinds of birds, such as the kingfisher and the European green woodpecker, and countless other animals like squirrels and bats. And let's not forget rare plant species, including the so-called 'stinzenflora': rare plants that were introduced in the gardens of noblemen and were specific to historic estates. The park is like a green oasis of tranquillity in the middle of the hustle and bustle of the urban agglomerate, and is therefore popular with hikers and nature lovers.
