CORTEWALLE

This beautiful water castle is situated in a 9 ha. big park. The oldest part of the castle dates back to the 15th century. There were big renovations in 1856 which were mostly focused on the interior of the castle. During that period they also added an ice cellar and buildings for the gardener, the horse servant etc. The castle is one of the few castles that was never destroyed or was never under siege. It also was in the hands of only three different owners, namely the families Triest, Goubau and Brouchoven de Bergeyck. The city of Beveren became owners of the castle in 1966 and the castle was restored in the eighties. The castle is now part of the cultural center Ter Vesten. You can walk freely in the park and you can have a drink and a bite in the inn that is situated where the horse stables once were. You can also visit the castle by appointment and with a guide. Every first Sunday of the month (from May until September) there is at 3pm a guided tour for individuals. You can find this castle in Beveren.
