The original building was extended several times during the Middle Ages, once after a fire in 1387.In 1487 the castle was besieged, and around the same period the La Marck family took ownership of it. In the early 16th century the outer wall was built, with casemates and an artillery tower added.Today the castle is owned by the town of Theux and is open to the public. The artillery tower at the north-east corner contains a small exhibition and the ticket office.

  • Quiet this castle which continues to live thanks to enthusiasts and despite his age from another era and its partial destruction carries at the time of its splendor and allows children to dream of the Knights the or we parents see stones and a history of touch Owers centuries. Don't hesitate to go to the brewery, very nice place!

  • Beautiful ruin with a nice story. The price is €4 per person and if you bijneemt an audio guide (which I recommend) there will be another €1.50. This ruin is certainly worth a visit.
