Roam the formal gardens of Kasteel de Haar, and then head inside to admire the richly decorated and wood interior. Located just outside Utrecht, this medieval fortress is complete with ramparts, gates, drawbridges, and large gardens. It was fully restored and rebuilt in 1892 after a large donation from the Rothschild family, but previous structures on the land date back to 1391. The inhabitants, the Van Zuylen van Nyevelt family, passed ownership over to the foundation, but still reserve the right to spend one month at the castle per year. View the many pieces on display around the castle, all of which come from the Rothschild collection. Guided tours are available to see the kitchens, greeting rooms, and dining rooms, but are usually only conducted in Dutch.

I wouldn't consider myself one that finds historical places fascinating but this place is really cool. The beauty of the gardens are out of this world and just so peaceful to walk around and enjoy the nature. Just a pointer. Plan your day according to the bus times.
It's a gorgeous castle. If you had never visited it I recommend you to get there in the morning, in that way you will have enough time to see the inside of the castle and the gardens. In the castle they have cards in 5 languages with the explanation of what are you seeing, and also there are guides in some of the main rooms, all of them were really nice and open to answer my questions. In the gardens they have a lot of photo spots and the views are wonderful. They also have a deer farm, I don't know if is allowed to feed them but there was a lot a people feeding them with nuts that fall from trees (they didn't gave them anything else), I did it myself. It was a delightful experience, my whole visit was.
