We visited the château as part of the best of Belgium in one day tour with Quasimodo. The château is done in a new Gothic style. Many of the rooms are furnished with the original furniture and art work. The other rooms contain some of the artwork that the owners had collected over time. The grounds are very pretty and are done in an English garden style.

I would highly recommend going there if you have a chance.

Went here on a visit from our cruise ship. It would have been nice to have had longer to look at all the exhibits in each room. As well as having a guided tour downstairs we had some free time to go upstairs to look at the chapel, the other rooms and exhibitions. Everything is beautifully kept.

A lovely old castle in fantastic grounds, the Ménage, stables and outhouses are worth a look. The grounds are free to wander round, with clean toilets and plenty of benches. Lovely big lakes. House/ castle very interesting and a great place for a short visit.

This is really not an old castle, but one built to look like one. It cost about 20 euro from the center of town to get there by taxi and then the entrance fee on top of that.

This castle is a neogothic castle from the end of the 19th century as indicated on the website. It was built in this style on purpose by the builders, certainly not with the intention to look old. It is the only castle in Belgium which has kept its original furniture. The history of Belgium is very important as King Albert I resided there to form the new post war government. Furthermore it has a large collection of artwork.
You can reach the castle by bus (also indicated on the website) and the entry price is the same as the other museums.

The castle is very nice and the outside îs beautiful. The area around includes some small houses and a big pond with lots of benches from where you can admire the view
