Stichting Heerlijkheid Brederode

Stichting (Foundation) Heerlijkheid Brederode (SHB) is the tenant of Brederode Castle. In 2013 Brederode Castle was threatened to be closed to visitors because of a subsidy stop. To prevent this, Stichting Heerlijkheid Brederode was established by Dimitri Arpad, so the castle could remain open to the public.
The manager and volunteers of the foundation keep the castle open to the public and maintain the premises.

Stichting Heerlijkheid Brederode is a non-profit foundation and is registered with the Amsterdam Chamber of Commerce.
