3x an estate for your event!

Want to impress business associates, clients or employees? Then a fairytale estate or a stately castle is the ideal setting for your event. These venues, where history comes alive, offer all the peace and quiet you need. Let’s explore three such special places!

Oranjerie Hydepark: royal grandeur!

We begin with a hidden gem. Close to Utrecht lies a venue that will make your guests feel like royalty: Oranjerie Hydepark. Designed by Jean Nicolas Landré, inspired by the iconic palace and gardens of Versailles, it brings a slice of French royal grandeur to Doorn. With ornate domes, tall arched windows and rich ornaments, the orangery’s exterior is majestic. Inside, the national monument exudes the same elegance. The bright, plenary room can accommodate up to 100 people. For workshops, break-out sessions or meetings, choose one of the luxurious subspaces. Another tip? Enjoy a drink with your guests on the terrace as the sun sets behind the fountain of the large pond. In a word, it’s magical!

Kasteel Duurstede: your own castle with drawbridge

If you prefer a more rugged, characterful venue, Kasteel Duurstede is ideal. It’s one of the country’s oldest castles, with history dating back to the early 13th century. Guests enter over a drawbridge to the castle island,a world away from the daily hustle and bustle of the day. There’s no better start to your event! With its metre-thick walls and vaulted rooms, this venue oozes history. Two towers are at your disposal, hosting up to 350 guests. The largest room, in the Burgundian Tower’s bishops’ room, offers spectacular views of the surroundings.

Kasteel De Schaffelaar: stylish and atmospheric

Kasteel De Schaffelaar in Barneveld should definitely be on your shortlist if you’re looking for a country estate event. Dating from 1850, it stands out with its ornate, detailed architecture. Even the driveway to the terrace imparts a VIP feeling. With eight reception rooms, additional spaces and a trendy lounge cellar, you can accommodate up to 400 guests or a smaller gathering here. Consider using the terrace, castle garden and surrounding estate for your programme. This venue provides a lush setting for outdoor activities and is highly accessible, with a central location and a nearby railway station.
