GREVENBROEK

Once there was a medieval farm and a late 18th century hermitage on this location. Baron Hubens commissioned a castle here in 1749. This castle was totally remodeled in the 19th century. It was in 1852 bought by Count Barthélémy Theux de Meylandt one of the most noble man of the government of the newly founded Belgium. He remodels the castle in a neo-renaissance building.
It was later passed on to a religious order and then bought by the Kluijtmans family. Wk made some alterations so it can be used as a location for weddings and receptions.
When I was there in August 2008 the castle looked to be in bad shape. The park is open and in a building close to the castle is a tavern. There is also a play ground for kids. You can find castle Grevenbroek in Hamont Achel.
