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.Put Chateau de Franchimont on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Theux vacation trip planner.
