Since Marie’s death in 1923, the castle has exposed not only its noble interior, but also the exterior. The property has a park that is one of the biggest in Belgium. Director Luc Vanackere, enthusiastic by heart and inspiring when you hear him speak, can give a lively and accurate description. “It has been the site of many fights; complete walls have been torn down and were never rebuilt again. Maybe they thought the panorama was too beautiful to close off,” Vanackere says.
