Castles on top of "mountains" (if we can call them mountains...); castles dominating the plains; mediaeval fortresses; small mansions, large estates; ruins witnessing heroic pasts... We've got it all, right here in little Belgium! If ever there was a country of castles, Belgium sure would end at the top. Some tried to estimate how many castles there are on this little piece of earth we call Belgium. If won't even attempt to do so. All I'll say: there are many!!!

I don't know why, but for some reason I have a strange fascination for these buildings. And I especially like those old mediaeval fortresses. These fortresses breathe history! Their power, their story... Every brick in every wall has a story to tell. Just image what these walls have witnessed through the ages.

Did I make you curious? Good! That's what I was aiming for. Just have a look around on these pages. You'll get to know some of these castles a little better. Don't worry, I won't start telling their history in detail, I'm not a historian! You'll mainly find pictures here, with a little explanation on the side. Now, keep in mind: I'm not a photographer either! Maybe some pictures aren't to great... but hey, there is always room for improvement, right?!

The only thing left to say: Have Fun!
