We arrived midday on a Monday only to be told the castle was only open to the public on weekends. We’re leaving Belgium tomorrow so I guess we won’t get to see it.

We were on a walking holiday and walked past the castle. We stopped to look round and it was well worth it. An excellent English leaflet (didn't bother with the audio guide) and a great castle to explore. We were going to go to the...More

When driving by or staying nearby this area it's really worth the visit. It's an old ruin of a castle with an guided tour (possibility for audio guide). Cool history and even the possibility to go 18 meters underground!

Great spot to visit when nearby. The entry fee is only 3,5€ and you get a geocache for free :-) Great views from the ruined towers too

A wonderful old castle with dungeons (frightening!!!) and a lovely view. You can really experience the Middle Ages.

Nice for a quick visit. You won't learn anything new but it fits well in its environment. Try to walk to the castle from the school at the bottom of the hill through the forest. Cheap entrance and good service

No bar, and still in works but still nice to see. If you ask at the desk you can dress up your child as a real soldier of the middle age!
