  • Beautiful journey through time narrated by motivated guides who know the subject. The small theatre is of rare splendour. The Regular presence of the Princess is a must!

  • A truly well preserved castle with a very interesting visitor experience. You are provided with an iPad and an application. There is also some guides for you. We were lucky enough to meet the family living there. Make sure to pay a visit to the city of Chimay that is beautiful as well.
