Loevestein Castle Entry Ticket

Embark on a journey through time at Slot Loevestein, a 14th-century fortress with tales of knights, strategic battles, an infamous prison, and extraordinary escapes. Nestled in the heart of the Netherlands, Loevestein Castle isn't just a testament to medieval architecture; it's a chapter in the story of Dutch identity and democracy. From its early days as a knight's stronghold to a state prison that witnessed one of the most ingenious escapes in history, every stone of Loevestein has a story to tell. Surround yourself with nature, history, and the legacy of one of the Netherlands' greatest scholars, Hugo de Groot. From Knight's Stronghold to State Prison Slot Loevestein's journey began in 1358 by Knight Dirc Loef van Horne. This fortress, initially a single tower, expanded over time into the magnificent castle we see today. In the 16th century, during the tumultuous Eighty Years War, Loevestein's strategic location made it a coveted price, changing hands between the Dutch and Spaniards. When finally secured by the Dutch, it transformed into a state prison, setting the stage for one of the most daring escapes in Dutch history. The Great Escape of Hugo de Groot The 17th century brought new fame to Loevestein as the prison of Hugo de Groot, a renowned lawyer and theologian. His escape in 1621 from a life sentence, ingeniously concealed in a book chest, has become legendary. Despite the tight security, his wife's plan led to one of the most talked-about prison breaks. A Bastion in the Hollandse Waterlinie Loevestein's significance was further solidified as part of the Oude & Nieuwe Hollandse Waterlinie, an ingenious defense system of the 17th century. This network of forts and inundations was designed to protect key Dutch cities. In 2021, its historical and strategic importance was recognized globally when it was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It’s this fascinating history that makes a visit to Loevestein Castle absolutely worthwhile. For kids Loevestein has a lot to offer for kids as well. They can discover the history and stories of the castle and the fortress. Learn how to shoot a musket, mix the right ingredients for gunpowder to shake the tower to its foundations, and make sure the fortress doesn't flood when the water starts to rise!

It was our first experience with the online game and we had problems getting started. But then everything went smoothly and we were able to discover places that we wouldn't have found otherwise. A great game and highly recommended. The service team was also great.

A nice museum with an excellent overview of the time at the camp. Very impressive too. Especially the crematorium. Highly recommended to go.
