¶ On the site of Kasteel Doornenburg, there was already a fortified house in the 9th century, known as Villa Dorenburc. The monument consists of an outer castle and a main castle, which are connected by a narrow wooden bridge. It is one of the largest and best-preserved castles in the Netherlands (although badly damaged in the Second World War). In 1968 the television series Floris was filmed on this castle.
