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

What a nice surprise! Such a nicely restored castle with lots of interesting exhibits inside. It is privately held, but one can visit probably half of the castle, which is furnished with various fitting styles. Most interesting, though, are the exhibits about the history of...More

The castle is already nice outdoors and well situated in nice landscape. Inside it is very well maintained and restored. The rooms are not very big but the furniture is very nice and it gives a cosy view. Agree with the other reviews and comments....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!

This is the first castle our family has visited. When I want to see a castle, this is what I expect the outside of it to look like. It was small but nice. We were finished touring the castle within 1.5hrs. Some of the exhibits...More

This old castle in the Ardennes is one of the oldest castles still inhabited by the family that originally owned it.It is also one of the most imposing in Belgium ; modernisation and alterations have not changed the wholly medioeval character. For 8€ you can...More

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
