this is not really a castle, it's more like a palace, it looks really great from the outside, the inside it's not worth seeing: for the ticket price of 10€ you can see a bunch of rooms which look fake and temporary exibitions completely disconnected...More

Great location in the countryside near Brussels. Gaasbeek usually has very interesting exhibitions even though the castle and insides are totally awesome with great historical reference, they have combined art showing to bring more business;Definately check it out.

Nice and quiet place to come and relax in a very peaceful parc around a beautiful castle. Autumn is the best period in my opinion.

Stepping back in our past. Nice walk to Castle and drink on the walk back makes it a very nice visit with a nice look over the region from the castle walls.

This castle is well preserved and the interior can be visited on a paid guided tour. The domain itself, however, can be visited entirely for free and provides some nice photo opportunities and relaxation in a beautiful natural environment. Definitely recommended on a sunny afternoon.
