Did you know Belgium hides a wealth of castles? Wallonia alone counts 1,500. Open to the public, they share their story and that of their region with visitors. Discover them through walks in the countryside, historical visits and fascinating events.

 Castles for all tastes

Wallonia’s magnificent castles offer a wide palette of architecture. Some were built to defend a village, a location or control strategic rivers and roads. They usually stand on a plain or on top of rocky outcrop. Others were designed for leisure or a combination of both.
