BRAEM

The Braem stronghold belonged in the 14th century to Hughe Braem and his spouse Isabelle van Halewijn. The castle was part of the belt of strongholds that defended the city Gent. The castle was rebuild and restored in the 19th century several times and lost most of its original features. It belonged in the the beginning of the 20th century to the family Groverman de la Kethulle. They sold it in 1946 to the town of Gentbrugge. It was used as city hall until 1974. Since then it is used as music academy. The park around the castle with lots of ponds is open to the public
