Belgium Castles

In happy and well-established Belgium, famous for its sophisticated architecture and picturesque landscapes, a lot of places remained where contemporary travellers can "move back" to the Middle Ages. Due to the number of majestic citadels and luxurious palaces that have survived until today, Belgium is definitely the leader among its much bigger European neighbours, offering an opportunity to visit a few hundred historic strongholds to tourists. The great designs of medieval architecture in the harmonious surroundings of the charming landscapes of Ardennes Forest and river valleys are the right combination of beauty created both by humans and nature. The most popular Belgian castles include the Château de Belœil, called «the Belgian Versailles» because of its subtle appearance, Het Steen Castle – one of the first stone buildings among the castles of the 13th century, as well as Gravensteen (castle of the Counts of Flanders), Ghent's most popular tourist attraction.
