Ever since the build of the castle in the 13th century the castle has been ‘managed’. Count Floris V, the builder of this citadel, did not live here himself. All management was left to the lord of the castle, the castellan or bailiff. This also meant that the castle was home to the bailiff. Throughout the centuries, the manner of management has changed repeatedly. Since the sixties, a castle manager once again lived at the castle itself.
