Come and see Rams Woerthe yourself, renowned as being the Downton Abbey of Overrijssel. This mansion was built for the wealthy Tromp Meester family and was one of the architect’s most expensive houses ever built. Take a look at the flamboyant art nouveau wrought iron features, the colourful stained glass windows and the extensive servants’ quarters.

We would love to tell you more about the architecture, interior design, furnishings and the family who lived there. Come and visit, the doors are open!

Villa Rams Woerthe

This impressive stately home was built in 1899 and is an outstanding example of the ‘New Art’, the Dutch equivalent of the Art Nouveau.

The name Rams Woerthe refers to the fields of ‘woerthe’ on which the villa was built. These fields were once owned by a mayor called ‘Ram’.

Be just like the Tromp Meester’s family

What was Mrs Tromp Meester’s favourite place? Did she also sit at the table and play games with her children, or did she prefer to look out over the parkland and see the deer walking around? (There are still deer here to this day) What is your favourite place?

Very nice villa and interior. You can sit on the chairs and get a free cup of coffee / tea in the conservatory. Small-scale with very friendly volunteers.

ART NOUVEAU

The huge stained glass window is one of the Art Nouveau jewels of the Villa Rams Woerthe. Since the middle ages, churches had used stained glass, but this was a new innovation for houses built at the end of the 19th century. In the stunning eye catching centre piece of Adolf le Comte’s window there are 2 girls with swans on reigns. It is a perfect illustration of nature; many animals surround them; carp, swallows and butterflies to name a few.

Today we visited Rams Woerthe. We all loved it, including the children. They enjoyed playing the games, felt like they almost lived there and even made 'Kniepertjes' in the kitchen.
