  • Very nice Castle in a beautiful domain. Beautiful tour with ipad as a guide but the encounter and the explanation we got from the princes is unbeatable. We come next year to the Christmas market with concert in the Castle.

  • The Princess Elisabeth de Chimay is a lady who loves his Castle and its region. A treat to hear him speak of local history! The tour is very interesting.

  • Friendly visit of the castle was refurbished since our last visit to Chimay. Now, visits are interactive which is great I recommend it. To do in couple, between friends or family a joy for all. And out of the castle there is one small restaurant that looks to be very like the original we will try on my next visit to Chimay

  • 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.
