Many of the rooms are furnished with the original furniture and art work. The other rooms contain some of the artwork that the owners had collected over time. The grounds are very pretty and...

Went here on a visit from our cruise ship. It would have been nice to have had longer to look at all the exhibits in each room. As well as having a guided tour downstairs we had some free time to go upstairs to look at the chapel, the other rooms and exhibitions. Everything is beautifully kept.

A lovely old castle in fantastic grounds, the Ménage, stables and outhouses are worth a look. The grounds are free to wander round, with clean toilets and plenty of benches. Lovely big lakes. House/ castle very interesting and a great place for a short visit.

This is really not an old castle, but one built to look like one. It cost about 20 euro from the center of town to get there by taxi and then the entrance fee on top of that.

This castle is a neogothic castle from the end of the 19th century as indicated on the website. It was built in this style on purpose by the builders, certainly not with the intention to look old. It is the only castle in Belgium which has kept its original furniture. The history of Belgium is very important as King Albert... More

We went here on a visit from our cruise ship. Small castle which only allowed you in the ground floor but understandable as its a private house.Pretty gothic castle from the outside and has a maze would have liked to have spent a little longer.But enjoyed the visit.

Nice castle in a very quiet park including a maze where you can really spend hours to get out. Inside, the castle is very interesting, they have paper guides in English too.
