Castle Cortewalle Beveren

The first stone of the Cortewalle castle must have been laid in the beginning of the 15th century. It is a beautiful water castle although there have been some big renovations over the years.

Some rooms and the chapel are open to the public and can be visited with a guided tour. In the attic there is a museum. There are also regularly exhibitions and concerts held at the castle. Around the castle there is a park of approx. 10 hectares including a unique coach house dating back to the 18th century.

The coach house is now a café and restaurant. Also very interesting is the cast iron bridge and a number of artworks surrounding the castle.

As an visitor you can only see the castle on a guided tour from May to September, every first and third Sunday of the month. The visit is free. The entrance to the garden is also free.

You can find the castle at this address: Zwarte Dreef 1, Beveren.
