Book a private guided tour
If you would like to arrange a private tour for family, colleagues or another group outside the regular scheduled times, please use the booking request form on this page. Tours are led by our trained and experienced guides and last around one hour. You can currently choose from three different tours:
1. Ship & contents – €60 per group, a group consists of max. 20 people
With this tour, the group gets an extensive tour of the ship De Meern 1 and its special finds. In addition, the story of the Castellum is explained. This tour is suitable as a first introduction to Castellum Hoge Woerd.
2. Watchtower & limes – €50 per group, a group consists of max. 15 people
With this tour, the group will visit the replica of the Roman watchtower. Here the story is told of the defense line of the Roman Empire: the Roman limes, recognized as World Heritage.
3. 3D/VR tour – €60 per group, a group consists of max. 10 people
With this tour, the group travels back in time using Virtual Reality glasses. Immerse yourself completely in Roman times as you stand on the ramparts of the fortress or the Roman ship or move between the soldier barracks in the courtyard. You can choose between three themes: castellum; ship & dock; bathhouse.
Group visits must be booked at least two weeks in advance and are processed within four business days. Please note that your booking has not been finalised until you receive a confirmation e-mail.
Guided tours are reserved by name. If you are unexpectedly unable to attend, you can cancel free of charge up to 72 hours prior to the tour. If you cancel within 72 hours, unfortunately we can no longer refund the purchase amount. By requesting a tour you agree to this.
