Belgium has chateaux too!A fortress originally built in the 1200s to protect the city of Gent, it had been destroyed a couple of times but rebuilt for the last time after it burned down in 1579.
The castle, which is privately owned is opened to the public but only the castle grounds, so don't expect to go walking through this old structure. Having said that, it is still a very picturesque place and the gardens are very beautiful during the spring and summer.
