¶ Huis Vorden was initially a military building, and was inhabited or occupied from 1315 by various noble families, including that of Ripperda and from 1771 to 1974 by the Van der Borch family. After the Second World War it functioned as the town hall of Vorden after a long period of vacancy. Since 2004, the castle has been used as a wedding venue and museum. The monumental building can be visited for a fee.
