Doorwerth Castle is a medieval castle situated on the river Rhine near the city of Arnhem, Netherlands.

In 1280 this second castle was again besieged and this time the bailey was burned down. This castle probably consisted of a simple hall-keep, two stories high with 1.20 meter thick walls, and featured a surrounding moat which was fed by the nearby river Rhine.
