Alden Biesen, so much in one castle! Historical monument, tourist draw, setting for events and exhibitions, centre for European operation, congress centre, ... Alden Biesen is all of these things and more!Originally built by the Teutonic Order, it is now one of the largest castle estates of the Euregion. Young and old, small and tall, culture and nature lovers: everyone loves it here. Come visit our castle and discover all that Alden-Biesen has to offer. Alden Biesen caters to both culture and nature lovers. Discover the historic building and gardens and visit an exhibition in the moated castle. Or make the Grand Commandery your point of departure for a hearty walk or a brisk bike ride through the Haspengouw region and the Demer valley. Afterwards you can enjoy one of the many events for which the Grand Commandery sets the stage.

We visited Alden Biesen for Fleuramour 2017, thus the castle became secondary. The floral exhibits certainly enhanced the castle, we were able to visit all the rooms and levels and out buildings over the 2 days we went. The exhibition of armoured knights was impressive,...More

The castle has a very old rich history about knights fighting during the Crusades to Jerusalem and is a part of many other castles nearby in the province of Limburg Belgium.
