Slot Loevestein - Castle

Outdoor activity with some shelter

The rich history of Loevestein Castle spans approximately 650 years and can be divided into three periods: the Middle Ages, the State Prison and the Dutch Waterline. Loevestein has become famous both nationally and internationally thanks to the imprisonment and escape of the internationally famous scholar and lawyer Hugo Grotius, founder of international maritime law by drawing a distinction between national and international waters.

Today the castle is situated in the 'new nature area' in the flood plain of the rivers Meuse and Waal. This area between the dykes has been returned to nature in order to reduce the risk of flooding.
