History

The castle is located about halfway between the Castle Brederode and the Haarlem City Hall, which were built respectively in the second half of the 13th century and 1370, and probably dates from that period, when it is referred to as Huis te Schoten. Situated a mile and a half from Haarlem center, in those days it was situated in the middle of a town called Schoten. In 1403 it was given to Margaret of Cleves (c.1375-1411), and has since retained that name.

During the Siege of Haarlem in 1572 it was the headquarters of the Spanish army, under the leadership of the duke of Alva. Badly damaged, the rubble was used for city expansion, and the property changed hands several times until it was purchased by the city of Haarlem in 1713. Stones from the ruin can still be seen in surrounding buildings. The house nearby with a tower called the Kaatsbaan was used as a residence for former owners and is now also in use by the city gardens.
