Castle Doorwerth is one of the seven castles in Gelderland that is open to the public. Its history goes back to the 13th century. In time the complex is enormously extended and adjusted to the wishes of the various lords of the castle.


The castle is situated in the floodplains of the Rhine. From the Poortgebouw you have a lovely view on this. On the thrust wall at the back you find an alternating hill landscape with forests, fields and meadows. Great to take a walk or bike ride.
Would you like some culture or visit a town? Arnhem is around the corner.


A comfortable holiday home was realised precisely above the port. With the renovation everything possible was done to preserve the ‘historic feeling’ of the area. Traditionally the Poortgebouw was nothing but a square room, accessible via a wall staircase. Now the rooms are left open, the roof construction is in sight and a lot is finished with wood. So, the home has got both rustic-country as culture-historic features.


As said the home can be reached via a wall staircase. On the first floor you enter into the cosy living/dining room. On the second floor you find a double bedroom with bathroom. On the top floor there is also a double bedroom with bathroom.
Please note, this home does not have facilities for babies (for example cot or highchair).


In the castle complex there is a mixture of rooms accessible as museum, office rooms and hospitality facilities both daily hospitality as celebrations and parties.
For example, in the former horse stables of the castle, underneath the port. These are transformed into an ambient castle cafe that is open every day (Mondays only during the school holidays in region South) from 10.30 to 17.00 hours. It is also possible to book a castle breakfast there. From 10.00 hours you can have your breakfast at the home and/or if you prefer more company at the Zalmen.


Are you booking a stay in the Poortgebouw? Then you will receive a discount on a visit to the castle (opened from Tuesday up to Sunday). In the home you will find the required information to take advantage of this.
