Fogelsangh State is a country house and estate in Veenklooster that is open to the public.
Fogelsangh State is a country house and estate that is open to the public. It was built in 1646 and has been privately owned ever since. The estate was handed down from one generation to the next and never sold. Today Fogelsangh State is owned by Baroness Kyra Livia van Harinxma thoe Slooten, who has granted the Stichting Fogelsangh State foundation the right to use the building. In the 18th and 19th centuries the building was repeatedly refurbished. During the most recent restoration work carried out between 2001 and 2003, elements of the original 17th-century structure were uncovered.
These and other items can be seen in the lift lobby on the ground floor. In addition to what was already known, with these finds the history of the building’s construction can now be pieced together. Fogelsangh State is very much worth seeing. It is also a gorgeous wedding venue. The surrounding park designed by the famous landscape architect Lucas Pieters Roodbaard provides a beautiful backdrop for wedding pictures.
