Castle Cortewalle in Beveren

The first stone of the Cortewalle castle must have been laid at 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 regular 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 a 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.
