Huis Bergh Castle audio tour

Visitors to the castle receive the audio tour free of charge. There are twenty stories, ranging from tales of the turbulent life of the ‘Crazy Count’, the thuggish Count Hendrik van den Bergh, and the hard life of the sweet Countess Maria Elisabeth. The tour also covers things like the meaning of the Holy Family in a painting, and how a manuscript is created – and of course there are stories about Jan Herman van Heek, who bought the castle in 1912.

In short, exciting, interesting and sometimes emotional stories about the rich history of this age-old castle. It’s safe to say that it’s a great asset to Castle Huis Bergh. Rabobank is one of the sponsors of the audio tour. The audio tour is available in English, German and Dutch.
