Castle Sweet Castle
I have another page about Andre's Castle on the Misc page of this site. You can find some history and architectural
information of Andre's Castle (de Torentjes) on that page or you can click the link here. But there seems to be
quite a bit of interest in the Castle. So I have decided to make a picture page with castle pictures. Some of these
pictures are also on other pages of this site, but there are also new ones. I just put them all together in one place.
When I find or get more pictures of the Castle and the inside I will post them here. Some quick information, Andre says
he does not live in the Castle but in a regular house within walking distance from the Castle. He uses the Castle for
promotion purposes and he does have some offices there. He slowly but surely is renovating the Castle. He bought
his Castle on September 11, 1999 for 1.458.450,-- Euro. It was in bad shape and needed and still needs quite a bit of
restoration. In old pictures you can see the house number on more recent pictures the number has been digitally
removed. If you stand in front of the gate the number is on the gate.
