A very nice castle, but quite a deceiving visit. It is not worthy to go there unless you are a Flemish speaker. Guided visits are only in Flemish, indeed the guide only speaks Flemish. You can visit the castle by yourself, but there is no...More

As most of it is still being used by the owner, you pay for a small portion with a good historical background of the 1000 years of the castle life. Audioguide available only in Dutch. Unfortunately you cannot visit the gardens nor the courtyard.

This castle is lived in by a wealthy banker family who has owned it for 5 generations. I have the feeling that the bare minimum is being done to keep it visitable. It has a very interesting history but not really brought to life very...More
