Day Tripper // Exploring Muiderslot Castle

As a little treat for my birthday, we grabbed the brolly and hit the road in the direction of Amsterdam, seeking a noble kingdom by the name of Muiderslot.

This lovely little place boasts quaint streets lined with classic Dutch architecture, friendly cafes and of course the main event of the day; Muiderslot castle.

This treasure of a castle was originally built around 1370 and is now a national museum attracting many visitors to revel in its grand and regal magnificence. We spent the day strolling around the grounds, trawling up to the towers and down to the dungeons and generally marvelling at the sheer size of this beast! If you'd like a more in-depth insight into the history of this stronghold, it's curious and characterful owners and information on how and when to visit for yourself then be sure to check out it's website for top tips and up coming events!

Despite having a hairy moment with a somewhat angry swan, we managed to avoid the rain after all and found ourselves having a grand old day walking along the cobble stoned streets and enjoying the tour about the castle, one of my all time favourite things to do!
