Moersbergen Castle

Moersbergen Castle, locally known as Kasteel Moersbergen, lies south west of the town of Doorn, in the province of Utrecht in the Netherlands.

Moersbergen Castle was first mentioned in 1435 when a Steven van Sleen was granted its fief. Later it went to the De Wael family through marriage.

In 1539 the castle was given the status of a knightly manor. During the 16th century is was renovated several times. Around 1860 the castle was owned by a Dutch major general; Johan Daniël Cornelis Carel Willem baron d'Ablaing van Giessenburg. He had the castle drastically rebuilt in a Neo-Gothic style. 

Mr. J.W.A. Luden, owner of the castle in 1927, had it restored back to its presumed appearance from the 18th century, in the style of the Dutch Renaissance. It is the result of that restoration which we see today.

At present Moersbergen Castle is a a private residence and thus can not be visited. A nice castle, must be a great place to live in.
