Afternoon and evening: visit of Loevestein Castle for the members and partners, with dinner

Loevestein Castle’s rich history spans some 650 years. Roughly speaking, you can split its history into three main periods that we refer to as the Middle Ages, the State Prison and the Hollandic Water Line periods.

The most prominent period in the castle’s history is undoubtedly the State Prison period. Loevestein became notorious worldwide as the place in which [the world-famous legal scholar] Hugo Grotius (Dutch: Hugo de Groot), was imprisoned and from which he subsequently escaped in his book case with the assistance of his wife and their housemaid Elsje van Houweninge.
