Stadskasteel Zaltbommel 

This striking building in the center of Zaltbommel was once the residence of the infamous Gelderland general Maarten van Rossem. The house was built around 1535. The building has a striking decorative appearance with towers and battlements, making it better known as the city castle. Van Rossem had it fitted with lavish Renaissance carvings. Today, the city castle can be visited as a museum.
