Since 2019 we are located at our castle office in Dussen. In this inspiring building we develop our software, have our salesmeetings and plan our user days.

The castle is in a quiet location and provides us with enough room and fresh air to grow and be productive.

Why an office in a castle?

Maybe you are wondering why Apglos has its office in a castle. We have a very simple answer: the castle inspires us. It increases the creativity of our developers.

The castle also matches with our main focus. Which is developing software based on GPS localization. GPS localization gives you lots of information. One of them is orientation.

Castle Dussen has been already a point of orientation since the 14th century. A beacon for all kind op people. From nobility and even royals to hardworking farmers and craftsmen.

Just like we want to be with our software and products; a beacon for everyone who needs one in the world of GPS, land surveying and GIS mapping.

History of castle Dussen

Our castle has a long history. In the 14th century a tower was situated on this location. Arent van der Dussen decided to transform the tower into a castle in 1387.

Unfortunately they couldn’t enjoy the castle for a very long time. In 1421 a flood destroyed the complete structure. People from the area used the stones of the castle to rebuild their own homes.

In 1456 the family Van der Dussen started to rebuild the castle. During the Spanish war, the enemy occupied the castle. They decided to leave castle Dussen, when they realized the walls could not resist cannon fire. When the Spanish left the castle it was in a bad state.

During the ceasefire between The Netherlands and Spain, Baron van Ghent decided to restore castle Dussen. He did a great job, but the restoration was so expensive that he had to sell the castle after it was completed.

Different people lived in this castle since then. There were lords and even nuns. In WW2 the Germans used it as a shelter. The allied forces had no choice but to bomb a part of this castle.

After an intensive repair, the castle was used as a city hall for the township of Dussen. When that township merged with other surrounding townships, it became a cultural monument.

Nowadays people can get married in the castle, as well as use it as an office. Like we do.
