Bronbeek Estate

There are several monuments and memorials at Bronbeek Estate. Most of these monuments commemorate the occupation of the Dutch East Indies and the plight of prisoners of war. The estate includes special buildings, statues and a plant calendar. Guided tours are also provided.

Bronbeek Estate was created as a country estate in 1820. In 1859 King William III donated the estate to the Minister of Colonies. The government document stated that the property could never have another destination than that of a colonial military home for the disabled. And it has stayed that way till today.
