Opening to the general public shortly after the Second World War, Château de Chimay started welcoming music aficionados to its festivals and cultural events from 1958 onwards. “At the time, there were only three events in the region people would go to, and my father wanted to share his love for music in his own home,” says current owner, Prince Philippe de Chimay. “Our castle is very orientated towards music, given one of its peculiarities: having its own theatre!” Welcoming up to 25,000 visitors in the recent years, every possible effort has been made to keep the castle at the high-est standards.
