Where fairy tales come true TEXT: BETTINA GUIRKINGER | PHOTOS: CHÂTEAU DE VÊVES

Standing tall on a rocky platform next to the picturesque village of Celles, in the province of Namur, lies the Château of Vêves. Also known as the Castle of Sleeping Beauty, given its unique fairy tale look, it is a fascinating stop for visitors of all ages. One of the peculiarities of the Château of Vêves is the fact that it has belonged to the same family for over 800 years, a feat hard to beat. The Liedekerke Beaufort family took quarters in this stunning complex, recognisable by its six pointy towers, and still lives there today.

the castle walls. On top of this, a treasure hunt can be organised without prior reservation during opening hours. A Night at the Castle is another favourite, where children will travel back in time and enjoy a medieval dinner before participating in a treasure hunt after dark… only to celebrate their achievements the next day over breakfast at the castle (all for 40 euros per child). With an eagerness to bring history and culture to life, the Château of Vêves’ team looks forward to welcoming you to the unique experience of visiting this magnificent and authentic castle. Doors will open for individual visits from 26 March to 6 November, otherwise opened the whole year round for school trips and groups.

With the possibility to wear medieval costumes for both adults and children free of charge, the day of your visit is bound to be unforgettable. You will be guided by friendly and knowledgeable guides who bring the history to life and make you feel at home within www.chateau-de-veves.be 2_0_3C_Online_Advert_half_page_Layout 2 07/05/2015 09:34 Page 1
