About
The Castle of Lavaux-Sainte-Anne is listed as "Exceptional heritage of Wallonia". It is one of Wallonia's most famous buildings, as well as well-known symbol of the Famenne area. While strolling through the Castle, you can sometimes hear echoes from the castle's eventful past… A couple of the castle's highlights: " The walk around the moat that will also take you alongside the deer park. " Discover the inside of the fortress; you can visit it from top to bottom, from cellar to dungeon! " The Museum of the Lords of Lavaux during the 17th century : see how they enjoyed life in their luxurious surroundings. " The first floor hosts the Nature museum, and exhibits an impressive collection of stuffed animals that demonstrate the variety of the fauna in the Famenne. " The museum in the castle cellars evokes rural life in the Famenne area through typical 19th century customs, everyday objects, and celebrations. " Our wetland, a natural shelter for all kinds of animal species, is protected by the Walloon government as a natural area of "great biological interest". It is dotted with information panels packed with interesting facts. " Children will be disguised as princesses or knights, to make the adventure even more exciting !

We visited the castle on a Saturday afternoon (November 16th) which appeared to be the ideal moment as there were not that many visitors during our stay. We had all the time to get ourselves informed on the castle's history by very informative panels and a map of the castle's compound. All the floors of the castle are accessible and each floor has its particular background and interests. The place is very tidy with clear signage and friendly, helpful staff.

This is a small castle in a small village only a few minutes drive off the motorway. There is not much to it - the history of the building itself and a museum inside which goes through the history of the owners as well as hunting and wildlife.

It’s interesting enough without being totally engrossing. There are better chateaus nearby - Veves in particular springs to mind.

Really picturesque little castle! Very pretty garden leading up to a perfect little castle. Free parking out front of the chateau, €8 entry for adults which gets you into the chateau (including all 3 museums) and the wetlands on the other side of the car park. Castle was brilliant - favourite part was in the lower rooms which showed everyday life in the castle. A lot of taxidermy on the upper floors which may not be to everyone's likings, but also very interesting. You can buy food to feed the deers but they weren't easily accessible. The wetlands were small but very pretty, and would be very suitable to picnic lunching! However had one of the best lunches on our entire trip at the little cafe on the corner, just up the road from the chateau (croque Monsieur with mushrooms!)

Beautifully restored and well organised with multiple language-cards in each room explaining the history. The kitchen area under the Castle is particularly fascinating and brilliantly fitted out with items of the period. Background sounds reminiscent of daily life in the 14th century add to the atmosphere. A wonderful mix of periods well presented. Highly recommended.

The castle has a long history, it is really well renovated and there are 3 museums. In comparison with other Belgium castles I have visited, this one is smaller and not so attractive. They produce their own type of bier also, but I didn't like it ( this is my personal opinion). Nevertheless, should you like hunting or you are interested in the life during the past centuries, it's worth to visit. The castle garden is small, but beautiful.
The castle is located very close to E411 towards Luxembourg and it is easy to find it. There is free car park just in front of the castle.

Visited the chateau, ideally located next to the E411, years ago, and was still having a good souvenir of it. The outside is beautiful and at that time there was a nice and unique "musée de la chasse" inside.
Decided to revisit with my son, particularly for the musée, but was dissapointed...
The majority of the beautiful inside is now reserved for art exhibitions... gone is the hunting part...
What a pity... but still a magnificent castle.

The first glimpse of the chateau is really impressive, built in the 13th century but it was rebuilt several times. At first it was a defense-castle, later on it mainly was in use as home to the noblemen.

There are 3 museums in the castle and for me the first museum 'life of the noblemen' was by far the most interesting, the ambiance of the 17th century, history of the castle explained, loved it!
I did not really care for the museum of nature, to stiff. The museum of rural life of the area is a bit better. But just to wander around in this magnificent building is enough. The castle can also be used as weddinglocation!

The wetlands surrounding the castle are also unique, great place for a nice hike. They have alo of festivities so it pays to ask for the special itenary.

This was a place I had highlighted and really wanted to visit during mye roadtrip in Europe, and I ended up visiting this place two days in a row.

As a nature enthusiast it was the nearby nature area that was my main target. On the other hand, my visit in the castle amazed me - it was a really special castle and a very interesting experience. Beautiful garden, lots of interesting information, great sound effects and a lot of nice photo opportunities.

In the nearby nature area I encountered several bird species like reed warblers, hawks and herons. Also the ponds included a large number of frogs, and there were are also supposed to be several fish species here. You also get some great photos of the castles from here. The nature area was free to visit.
