Decent Mansion but currently in 2020, being renovated. It was built in the 18th century by the Montpellier family, and is principally known for the extensive water gardens that surround it, the Jardins d'Annevoie, the only ones of their kind in Belgium.

Amazing place in the middle of the Ardennes. Beautiful gardens combining water games in French, English and Italian styles. A place not to miss!

Krivoklát Castle

Křivoklát Castle was founded in the 12th century, belonging to the kings of Bohemia. During the reign of Přemysl Otakar II a large, monumental royal castle was built, later rebuilt by king Václav IV and later enlarged by king Vladislav of Jagellon.

The castle was damaged by fire several times. It was turned into a harsh prison and the building slowly deteriorated. During the 19th century, the family of Fürstenberg became the owners of the castle and had it reconstructed after a fire in 1826.

Today the castle serves as a museum, tourist destination and place for theatrical exhibitions. Collections of hunting weapons, Gothic paintings and books are stored there.
