Helmond Castle (Kasteel Helmond) was built nearly 700 years ago in the city of the same name. This square structure with circular corner towers is something straight out of a children’s drawing.
It is the largest moated castle in the Netherlands and is easily accessible by foot, car, and public transport thanks to its strategic location. Helmond Castle is an urban castle with a beautiful garden that is open to the general public. In addition to offering a place to relax, the garden also features several statues by various artists.
Together, Helmond Castle and the art gallery Kunsthal Helmond form Helmond Museum. Both museums are within walking distance of each other, separated by the Zuid-Willemsvaart canal in the city centre and close to shops, cultural hotspots, restaurants, and sports and leisure facilities.
