Opportunities for action through puzzles to solve and audio guide effective and living by the option to either read the explanations, listen and hear from the mouth of the current Princess. The highlight is to be invited to the theater by a guide to attend a historic film of the Castle and chimay and this 3-d with special effects. A pure moment of relaxation despite the rain outside

This means if you ask at the Concierge in the old chair or soda may be of more than 200 years old. You're going to see a 3 D movie in the original movie room. You get a tablet as explanation. But you may always ask questions to staff the upper is still used by the current owners

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!

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

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.
Gaëtan SgualdinoApril 30, 2017A place full of poetry. An incredible visit... and a real experience when, inside the Castle, you cross the Princess who shares his memories with you. The Castle Theatre is also a splendid place. A real jewel. During the visits, you will see a 3D movie. Many concerts are often held in this theatre, the soul of the Castle.
Christophe toussaintApril 27, 2017beautifully renovated, the tour is interesting, if you're lucky it is possible at the end of a corridor to meet the Princess
