Castle Helmond

Celebrate your children’s party in the castle

In the castle, exciting old stories come to life. During the party, you will learn more about how the castle was built, who lived there, what they ate and drank, and what their average day looked like. You’ll also find out how the castle was attacked and defended. How did the lord of the castle earn enough money to build and maintain such a grand estate? You’ll find out at Helmond Castle.  Choose your children’s party:

Children’s party 1: what does it take to be a knight?

Do you know what it takes to be a knight? Try lifting his sword and putting his helmet on. They’re heavy! Do you know what the residents ate and what their table manners were like? Or the types of punishments prisoners suffered in the Middle Ages? Do you know what an ice sledge is? Find out with your friends in the castle cellars.

Children’s party 2: transform into a lady or a knight

A guide will lead you and your friends up the spiral staircase to the second floor of the castle where you will be transformed into a lady or a knight. You will then be given a tour and hear fascinating stories about the castle and its former residents. Next is a trip to the castle café for a glass of lemonade and a cookie. Once you’re rested, you can hunt for the castle treasure using the squires’ route (for ages seven and older) or the scavenger hunt route (for ages four to six). Exciting!
