Mayor Van Zuylen opens travelling exhibition '1572' in Radboud Castle

On Thursday 30 June, Mayor Van Zuylen of Enkhuizen opened the travelling exhibition '1572' in Radboud Castle. It has been developed within the framework of the celebration of 'the Birth of the Netherlands'. The exhibition consists of a fixed part and a variable panel. The panel in Radboud Castle focuses on Medemblik. It can be seen in the Ridderzaal in July and August 2022. After that, the exhibition will travel on.

Four values '450 years of the Netherlands

The year 1572 was a turning point in our history, in which the rebels gained a foothold. It was a struggle for freedom, and freedom demands tolerance, solidarity and diversity. This was not self-evident; in this war, citizens came face to face. The travelling exhibition focuses on these four values.

1572: The Siege of Medemblik

The travelling exhibition is an addition to '1572: The Siege of Medemblik', which can be seen in Castle Radboud until March 2023. In it, you will face the same dilemmas as the main characters in the siege of that year.
