Castle Radboud is the only remaining West Frisian fortress built by Floris the Fifth. The castle dating from the 13th century houses a modest collection of objects that illustrate the building's history.
When visiting the castle, you'll have the chance to cast a glance into Medieval times. There's an exhibition that will help you do just that by telling you about the history of the castle and of Medemblik. The exhibit can be accessed by climbing the winding staircase created inside the tower's wall. After the exhibition you'll descend into the prison: enjoy getting the creeps. Finally, you can enjoy a drink at the castle's coffee room.
A visit is worthwhile for children as well: by means of a treasure hunt they'll explore the castle and feel amazed about how Medieval people used to live in a castle. There's also the option of organizing children's parties, with the children dressing up as knights and ladies and looking for Floris the Fifth's sword.
