Euonymus

Often called spindle or spindle tree.The wood of some species was traditionally used for the making of spindles for spinning wool; this use is the origin of the English name of the shrubs.
Spindles are popular garden shrubs, grown for their foliage, the deciduous species often exhibiting very bright red autumnal colours, and also for the decorative berries (Wikipedia).
The Dutch name is 'kardinaalsmuts' (cardinal's hat).
