  • A very interesting visit, the princely family who warmly welcome visitors. The shelves at disposal make clarification on the parts of the Castle. A very well maintained by a wonderful family Castle. In any case I thank the Prince of Chimay family at the moment of sharing and conviviality.

  • Visited Chimay Chateau some 6 years ago and Had a Wonderful Guided tour by Princess Elizabeth . With such an intimate knowledge of the Chateau and its history I think we were given quite a few personal insights that are rarely passed on especially regarding the Shroud of Turin A totally Brilliant visit
  • Very nice Castle. Fantastic and super friendly staff. If you're lucky, you might meet some members of the royal family. And the interactive tour (iPad) is original but done very well. We also loved the theatre!
  • This is the €9,- worth, iPad-tour with augmented reality-features, a 3D-film in a lovely theatre. The owners really make you feel at home in their château. It has an interesting history which is explained in the tour and nice film. All in all, a must see when you're in the neighborhood.
  • Passionate staff, and fantastic tour with iPad in French or Dutch. Cool 3D performance at the private theatre and you can the Princes of Chimay, which itself still inhabit a large part of the Castle, also really meet.
