It looks like a classic castle - and the history later revealed it was designed to be exactly that.
The stairs are narrow and steep - although my four-year-old managed them fine. The view of Gent from the top of the castle is great.
There are small information panels in each of the rooms that give their purpose and history in English, so you come away with a sense of what happened in the castle.
The torture instruments exhibition was suitably macabre - although some parents may not their children to see them (ours were too young to understand the significance of what they were looking at).
