Read on for practical details on how to visit with kids.
Château de Vêves – A Hidden Gem in the Heart of Belgium
Nestled amidst the verdant landscape of the Belgian Ardennes lies the enchanting Château de Vêves, a fairytale fortress that captures the imagination with its ethereal charm and timeless beauty.
Far from the bustling cities, this hidden gem offers an idyllic escape for those seeking a serene retreat infused with history, culture, and an air of mystery.
The nearest city is Dinant and we highly recommend visiting it, if you haven’t already. It’s one of our favorite places in Belgium. You get the cable car to the citadel and there’s a small playground there too.
