Visiting Kasteel de Haar

I recently organized a photography tour of Kasteel de Haar (De Haar Castle) with a group of photographers based in Utrecht. We went on a gorgeous fall day; we really lucked out with the weather. This amazingly beautiful castle was restored in the late 1800s by the architect Pierre Cuypers who also built Amsterdam Central Station and the Rijksmuseum. It is located just outside of Utrecht, and accessible by car, bike and public transport. We met up and took the bus out to the countryside admiring the cows, sheep and birds enjoying the fields. Below is a selection of the photos taken that day.

      Thank you! It was a very nice day. Have to go back, there was so much stuff I didn’t get to see. Maybe we can do it the next time you visit.
