We’ve visited the chateau with our two kids. This is place is very well suited for children, they experience it as a big adventure. The castle itself is quite big so make sure you have good walking shoes. You can park right in front of...More
This castle is really worth visiting. It's a great place to explore with lots of tunnels etc. It was definitely worth getting the English language guidebook. We didn't bother with an audio guide and didn't need it as the English guidebook had a good map...More
We read about the castle and so visited it in September. There is a car park at the top just outside the entrance. There is an audio guide available in 4 languages. The castle was amazing some of it built into the rock. Wear sensible...More
Typical medieval castle in the middle of Belgian nowhere that we visited on a rainy Sunday. Even though the weather was not friendly at all and it was pouring heavily we enjoyed very much strolling through this magic place. We spent 2 hours discovering narrow...More
This was such a great place to visit. Be careful if you are driving to the castle though, some roads are very narrow to navigate. The entry prices were very reasonable and all throughout the castle and grounds were points of interest. There's one particular...More

Yes, it is worth the stop. Quaint little village. and you can walk around parts of the castle on the outside. The town looks like a postcard. We were also just looking for a place to stop and I was glad we stopped.
Advice on base to see Brussels, Brugge, Ghent, etc. (0 Replies)
Hi, We have a family of 3 and will have 3 nights near Brussels to explore the area by car/ train and then drive down to Luxembourg and further to The Netherlands. We can rent apartment in Vilvoorde or Brugge. Brugge is probably more charming place to stay, but Vilvoorde seems to be located better to explore the region and also closer to Luxembourg, so we'll have more time to make couple of stops on the way down. Also is it realistic to stop in Dinant to see the Citadel, possibly Chateau...More

This April, my husband and I will be picking up a rental car after a few nights in Bruges to drive to Dinant. We plan to stop at Hallerbos Forest to see the bluebells if they’re blooming. We also plan to stop at Kasteel van Beersel and Villers Abbey before arriving in Dinant. We have one full day to explore in this area. We are considering a trip to Chateau de Bouillon and Orval Abbey. The next day we are considering visiting either Durbuy or Bokrijk before dropping our car off in...More

Durbuy is a tourist honey trap and not much more genuine than Disneyland, trying to give the impression that it lies in the Ardenne which it doesn't. Hardly anyone actually lives there.
