The castle is tiny but free to walk through and get some good photos of. I enjoyed the walk up to the castle with the fertility statue that is placed right to the left of the entryway.

The Steen Castle is the oldest building in Antwerpen. Great place for photographs. After you pay your visit to the Cathedral and to Town Hall walk towards the river and then you will find yourself at the Steen Castle. There is now a children's activity center inside that looks new and interesting. Great view of the river activity. Enjoy!

not much more to say really, it's nice to take in as part of a walk, don't make a special trip to see it if it's out of your way, as there isn't much to see. but it makes a good stop off point for a picture or two.

A bit of history in the city centre of Antwerp, the castle is a good place to take pictures and walk a bit. Nothing interesting to see inside.

After walking from the Grote Markt to the river we managed some lovely photos. The Steen Castle is very romantic almost as if it came from Disneyland. We didn't go inside but it does look great and worth seeing.

Not much to see of this castle but it looks beautiful in the pictures. When you cross the gate you reach a bridge where you can take a walk.

The castel is very pitoresque on the outside, but the interior doesn't worth visiting. It has a bar and a nice long bridge to walk on, but no medieval interiors

Its a facade! The sculpture on the doorstep is good, and yes it looks like a fairy castle, but its just a facade.
