Bronkhorst is a village in the municipality of Bronckhorst, Gelderland, the Netherlands. Technically, it is a city and with only 171 inhabitants, it is one of the smallest cities in the Netherlands. Bronkhorst used to be a lordship. The earliest known lord of Bronkhorst was Gijsbert of Bronkhorst, first mentioned in 1140. In the Middle Ages, a castle was erected on the hill nearby the town. It is first mentioned in a 14th-century document. It consisted of a keep and associated buildings and was surrounded by a thick wall and a wide moat. It was sieged several times, most notably in 1582, when after nine months Dutch troops captured the castle, which was occupied by the Spanish. The castle changed hands many times, until its last owner, a merchant, had it demolished in 1828. Bronkhorst is known for its picturesque buildings, and houses a museum dedicated to Charles Dickens which also contains items purchased from the former Dickens museum at Rochester. We visited Bronkhorst in the spring of 2016.
