Stoutenburg is a village in the Dutch province of Utrecht. It is a part of the municipality of Leusden, and lies about 4 km (2 mi) east of Amersfoort.

The statistical area "Stoutenburg", which also can include the surrounding countryside, has a population of around 350.[1]

History[edit]

In 1252, the castle Stoutenburg near the village was founded by the lord of Amersfoort. From 1615, the castle was owned by Johan van Oldenbarnevelt. The castle was replaced by a manor, built in 1888.

Until 1 June 1969, Stoutenburg was a separate municipality, covering the villages of Stoutenburg and Achterveld. Most of the territory of the former municipality is now part of Leusden; the northern part was annexed by the municipality of Amersfoort recently.
