Who doesn’t know the Muiderslot? It has stood at the mouth of the Vecht for some 700 years. One of its most famous residents was Floris V, the nobleman who got along so well with the citizens and was killed by other nobles in 1296. Some four centuries later, the castle was the summer residence of P.C. Hooft, who invited literary friends, scientists and musicians there. That company later became known as the Muider Circle.
