Activities
In addition to guided tours, the castles play host to various expositions, performances and other events. Many of the castles also form a rich backdrop for commercial events and meetings. All of these activities allow a broad audience to actively learn about our architectural traditions and the bygone castle culture and lifestyle. Many visitors take guided tours of the castles and a lot of people attend a concert, wedding ceremony or special event in these castles each year. The other 28 castles
and country homes managed by the Gelderland Trust for Natural Beauty and Historic Houses are leased as private homes, visitor centres and party centres.
