Beersel Castle

The moated castle of Beersel is one of the few exceptionally well-preserved examples of medieval fortifications in Belgium. It remains pretty much as it must have appeared in the late 15th century. Over the course of the centuries, this moated castle has had a very eventful history. Visitors experience at first hand what it must have felt like to live in a heavily fortified castle in medieval times.
In 1999, the municipality of Beersel acquired the castle on lease from a national heritage foundation, the Koninklijke Vereniging der Historische Woonsteden van België (Royal Association of Historic Cities and Gardens in Belgium). The municipality aims to carry out repairs, renovations and upgrades to the castle. Since 2003 the castle has been undergoing a series of restoration campaigns.
