Castle of Beersel


The castle of Beersel, a water castle, is one of the few, well-preserved examples of medieval architecture in Belgium. It still looks like it looked at the end of the 15th century. Over the centuries this castle has a very moving history. As a visitor you will experience immediately how people lived in a medieval, fortified castle.


In the 19th century the castle was restored with an almost perfect historical responsibility. In 1928 Count and Countess Guillaume Hemicourt decided to grant the Castle to the "Friends of the Beersel Castle".

The castle has been owned by the Royal Association of Historic Residences and Gardens of Belgium since 1948, which makes it available to the municipality of Beersel.



You can find the castle at this address: Lotsestraat 65, Beersel.
