It looks like it came straight from the pages of a fairy tale, and Veves is a wonderful little castle to the explore. Tucked away in the Belgian countryside - it’s about a 15-minute drive from Dinant - Veves has a wonderful appearance from outside...More

We all loved it. :-) My 2 nieces got to dress up as princesses and couldn't be happier. Lots of historical artifacts to keep adults interested as well.

Drop in if you are passing. No there isn't masses to see but it has some interesting history, been carefully kept/renovated and the children get to dress up as knights and princesses!

I’m not sure how this castle is so highly rated; perhaps I’m jaded from having seen too many awesome castles elsewhere. It is beautiful from the outside, but there is very little by way of grounds, so you’re basically going to photograph it from the...More
