¶ Kasteel De Haar (also known as Haarzuilen and formerly called Huys te Haer) is the largest monumental castle in the Netherlands. The oldest mention, a deed of a fortified residential tower, dates from 1391. The monument was built in neo-Gothic style on the ruins of the old castle from 1892 by the top architects Pierre (1827-1921) & his son Joseph Cuypers (1861-1949) , also known from the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam.
