We got there by bike (starting point: Amsterdam) and it was a very nice trip, the town is typical and the castle is beautiful!

We were excited about touring Muiderslot, but we were disappointed with our experience. It was misleading that we paid full admission yet were not told that the tour guide would be speaking Dutch 95% of the time. We were given English handouts with sparse information...More

This is an easy trip to get out of Amsterdam for the day. You take a tram to the water and hop on a ferry. The castle is not original but no matter - there is history to be learned. I didn't not know anything...More

It's very easy to go to Muiden by bus and visit this extraordinary castle and its surrounding gardens. A nice excursion to Netherlands countryside. The castle is reconstructed but it looks like you are in the 14th century. Inside you can see some archaeological exhibits...More

I don't know about the tours, not joined them (and not sure if you really need one). Anyway, in the castle there are only few English information, most are in Dutch. Not a very difficult story, but get prepared to explain... More
