SummaryRoom guides show visitors the unprecedented opulence of the castle. They tell about the different rooms or answer questions.
Who are we?
Whether you visit Kasteel de Haar for the park, the wonderful history, the exhibitions, the gardens, the deer or to get married, you will imagine yourself in another world. Behind every door, every detail, every flower from the colorful gardens, there is a story. About other times, other cultures, other figures. De Haar is the largest castle in the Netherlands, which was once privately owned by the van Zuylen family and where her descendants still reside annually. The international jet set from the last century, with its exuberant lifestyle, also regularly visited the castle. From Coco Chanel to Roger Moore, they left their mark in the luxurious rooms of the most opulent place in Utrecht.
The Castle de Haar Foundation is committed to preserving and maintaining the castle, the gardens and the collection. In addition, we aim to make the entire complex accessible to a wide audience.
Room guides are there for visitors to the castle to tell the best stories about the history, the collection, the residents and all associated anecdotes. This is done in a proactive and dynamic manner. Room guides rotate in different rooms and have contact with visitors from home and abroad.
"Being a volunteer at Kasteel de Haar gives you the opportunity to take guests along in the great history and beautiful stories of the Castle and its residents."
