Last weekend we visited Loevestein Castle which is situated in a typically Dutch river landscape where the river Meuse and Waal join together. The knight Dirc Loef van Horne built his castle in 1361 as a strategic position. It was the ideal location to defend and from which to levy tolls.
A view over the river from the castle.
And the castle in full glory. We also visited the inside which is rather sober and dark, not much fourniture and a lot of stairs to climb.
