Nice grounds, not particularly remarkable on outside, did not tour inside. The real attraction is all of the parkland nearby, and the Moravian buildings nearby.

We had a guide (Theresa) to take us around. Nice to see the Council spent money in the 1960's bringing the place back from the brink of demolition. Historic value very good (William I - III era)

No English guides and castle only open Sunday for tours. It was still nice to walk around the grounds and look at modern sculptures. There is a brasserie and dining option.

We loved the guided tour through the castle with volunteer guides of the 'Zeist Gilde'. Informative, behind the scenes. Access to all rooms. No question unanswered. Very sympathetic group of volunteers giving the tours for a nominal fee. Great!

We got married here in june 1996. Living in Zeist still and at that time too, Slot Zeist is always in the corner of your eye. Making it the backdrop of the 'most important day of your life' was an easy choice. The beautiful setting,...More
