It's a bit of a trek down from the car park, so wear decent shoes! - but when you're there, the castle, which is a 20th Century reconstruction, is utterly breathtaking. The tours (provided in French and Dutch) are well delivered, in character, provided clearly...More

We had a lovely afternoon touring this beautiful castle. Had a great tour guide who clearly knew the history. After we walked down to the stream to a lovely old windmill, called Moulin du Bayehon, which is now a cafe/restaurant. Well worth the walk.

This castle is an oddball. It was built, abandoned and slowly deteriorated due to the many changes of power over the centuries (old people here have changed citizenship several times without having moved due to World Wat I & II). In the 70s, it was...More

Hi Yenthe, you can access the castle lower court and pub with a wheelchair. Visiting the castle and its surrounding can not be done in a wheelchair. Best regards, Marc
