Did you know that, during the Middle Ages, the Netherlands had the largest castle density in all of Europe? Many of these castles have disappeared, but there are plenty of them left. Also, many beautiful castles, houses and palaces were built later on. For instance, in the Dutch golden age, the 17th century.
