Nederland - Delden, Kasteel Twickel

Twickel is a unique historical country estate in Twente (eastern part of the Netherlands) and is no less than 4.100 ha. The setate was established during the Middle Ages. Between 1347 and 1953 Twickel was continually passed on from father to son or daughter. The last owner , baroness Van Heeckeren van Wasssenaer, countess Van Aldenburg Bentinck, who had no children, decided in 1953 to establish a foundation in order to preserve the estate as a nature reserve and cultural mionument. Nowadays Twickel is one of the largfest and best preserved private estates in the Netherlands.

Kasteel Twickel (Twickel Castle) is situated in the centre of the estate. The older parts, among which the tower at the front, date from the 15th century. Throughout ther centuries ther castle has been extended and beautified. The buildings, stables and coach house in the forecourt were added during the 18th century.

Kasteel Twickel is still inhabited and therefore the castle is open for visitors to a limited extent.
