May 15, 2022 – We visited two of the many castles in our province Gelderland. In the province of Flevoland we saw a lot of konik ponies at the nature reserve Oostvaardersplassen.
Essenburg Castle is located in the Netherlands province Genderland east of the village Hierden. The plaque on the castle argues that it was built in 1652. It is believed that the current building was built on the site of a medieval castle. However, serious archaeological investigations found no evidence of the existence of the predecessor.
