The castle is already nice outdoors and well situated in nice landscape. Inside it is very well maintained and restored. The rooms are not very big but the furniture is very nice and it gives a cosy view. Agree with the other reviews and comments....More

We all loved it. :-) My 2 nieces got to dress up as princesses and couldn't be happier. Lots of historical artifacts to keep adults interested as well.

Amazing views and wonderful staff. The kids (aged 2-15) dressed up, battled in the courtyard with swords, ran around the grounds and respectfully toured the interior. The staff was very laid back and it never really felt like a museum. It's a smaller castle and...More

This castle is in a picturesque valley and is an easy visit. Convenient parking and inexpensive admission fees. It was not crowded which made it nice on a warm Belgian afternoon. Worth a visit and it only takes about an hour. Plenty of time to...More
