Be inspired by the magic of Carel Willink and Ruurlo Castle

This Attraction is closed until further notice.

Ruurlo Castle is the second location of Museum MORE, the museum for Modern Realism in Gorssel. The museum collection at the castle focuses on the life and work of the master artist Carel Willink. The exhibition shows the development of an artist searching for his way, and who grew to become a truly extraordinary painter.

Carel Willink is, according to some, the best painter in his genre: Magical Realism! Is that a contradiction? No, it is paining the imagination as real as possible.

In addition to 45 works by Carel Willink, five special creations by fashion designer Fong Leng can be seen. This Chinese – Dutch designer had a store in the most expensive street in Amsterdam: PC Hooftstraat. Also, several museum already exhibited the special collections, such as the Van Gogh museum.

The unique Ruurlo Castle is located in the richly wooded Achterhoek region of the eastern Netherlands. It is one of the region’s most beautiful castles and is surrounded by a beautiful and lush English landscaped garden. You will really feel like you’re in a fairytale!

Ruurlo Castle itself has also reached a very respectable age. Its name appears in archives as far back as the fourteenth century. Can you imagine?

A visit to this historic site is a magical experience. A ticket to the museum entitles you to explore the rooms of the castle. And for those who do not wish to visit the museum, the surrounding English landscaped gardens and the restaurant, Oranjerie Ruurlo, are open to the public.
