Get Ready to Travel

Whether you went to the castle as a student or not, you are invited to join Emerson alumni, parents, faculty, family, and friends to travel to The Netherlands to experience Kasteel Well in all its summer beauty. We’ll begin our journey in Amsterdam, enjoying a private tour of the Rijksmuseum with Emerson faculty, a canal tour, and a traditional Indonesian dinner as well as time on your own to explore this historic city. Then we travel via luxury motorcoach to the town of Well, home to Emerson’s Kasteel Well, a fully restored 14th century medieval castle. In Well we’ll learn about medieval life through interactions with the Guild of Well and with musicians and interpreters of the time period, as well as our own Emerson faculty. Rounding out our experience will be a falconry demonstration, festive meals, optional digital photography classes (for all those pictures you’ll want to take!) and more as you explore the castle and surrounding town.

The Kasteel program was one of the most rewarding experiences of my life and I was excited for the opportunity to go back.
