4.3/5 based on 65+ reviews on the web
The Castle of Vêves occupies a rocky platform just outside the village of Celles, in the province of Namur, Belgium. It is classified as Major Heritage of Wallonia. According to tradition, the site has been occupied by castles since the time of Pippin of Herstal (7th century). In the later Middle Ages, the area fell under control of the Beaufort family, which oversaw the construction of a stronghold here in about 1230.The present castle, in the form of an irregular pentagon and flanked by six round towers of varying size, dates largely from around 1410. Successive restorations modified especially the walls of the inner courtyard, one of which is lined with a distinctive half-timbered gallery of two levels, and another of which was given a red brick facade in the Louis XV style. The northern frontage is crowned with a small cupola containing a clock.

  • Beautiful castle that life from that time shows. Complete with all the furniture of that time. Children can dress up as Lady or Knight by the Castle. Price on the high side.

  • Appearance is "Castle" Japanese have envisioned. Even the simple things I feel like OK you look and take pictures. I lean one way go get your Castle, but came a tour of Japan. Japan tour is incredible!. According to legend on this ground from Pepin II in the 7th century there was a castle. The current Castle is around 1410, primarily is a thing. Open call on the intercom at the entrance gate is closed. Without knowing what the local people to do so are hanging around, ask cool on the intercom.

  • A magnificent Castle (re) discovered family. What OWL concept to offer a children's treasure hunt... in costume of Princess and Knight. You can spend time winter visitation by the discoveries helping to solve the puzzle... with a terrifying surprise to the key. A very nice idea to visit with children!
