The Netherlands-Heemskerk
View on (in fact) a castle like manor, with walls too thin to be a genuine, defensible castle. Originally castle Assumburg dates from the 13th century and was rebuild in the 16th century. The square towers are the oldest parts.
Former home of the noble families of Van Velsen and Van Assendelft. Restored in the 20th century and nowadays in use as a Stayokay hostel.
The castles' garden was renovated about 10 years ago and is managed by the volunteers of Assumburg Castle Garden Foundation.
