Frequently Asked Questions

  1. Do I have to book online?
    As of 1 July, it’s not mandatory, but still preferred. Why?
    – To regulate the limited visitor numbers in the castle.
    – Also, it prevents cues at the entrance.
    – Finally, it helps with a possible “contact investigation” in case of an infection with the Covid-19 virus.
  2. Do I also have to book online if I have a museum card, BGL VIP card, Friends card or other valid entrance ticket?
    Again, it is preferred that you do. 
  3. Can’t I visit the Muiderslot whenever I feel like it, like I always did?
    As of 1 July, a reservation is not mandatory anymore. Do keep in account that we still work with timeslots and that it can happen that some timeslots are already full when you arrive. 
  4. Can I come with my (group of) friends?
    No that is not possible. For the time being, museum visits are only allowed for individual visitors or for a household, so people who live under one roof.
  5. When is the Muiderslot open?
    We are open 7 days a week from 10 am to 5 pm. Also on public holidays, weekends and school holidays. This can change if the cabinet tightens up the measures.
  6. What can you see and do in the Muiderslot?
    You can visit the castle, the gardens, the Water Shield, the fortifications and the castle square. Free audio tours are available in the castle and in the castle gardens. The ‘tower route’ audiotour is very suitable for children. There is also a treasure hunt for kids with DIY assignments through the castle and gardens (€ 2). On weekends, public holidays and during school holidays, the falconer is regularly present to give flight demonstrations. Finally, there are some small scaled and coronaproof events you can attend. Please check the calender for more information.
