Château

Interesting
This grey-walled castle with stone-roofed towers and a turreted keep is surrounded by a moat. It was built in the 12C to defend Ghent and altered in the 17C. The interior has a 17C atmosphere, with Antwerp and French furnishings and walls hung with tapestries. Note, on the ground floor, the Renaissance vaulting in the gallery overlooking the inner courtyard and in particular the collection of silverware (15C-18C) from various European countries, a donation by Claude Dallemagne.
