Looked great! But we've been stopped right from the start as they do not accept credit card payment... Really disappointing that no one (not the tourist office, nor the multiple guides) told us about this "detail".

We are really sorry that we cannot accept credit card but it is too expensive for a familial private one castle (and too small amounts). We are searching for an on line payment solution but we have first to resolve the problem of connectivity to the born (more difficult in the countryside). More

10 minutes driving south from Dinant on the east side of the river there is a view point and picnic site which gives a great view of the river and chateau. The chateau is best reached from Dinant by driving down south on the east bank of the river. It is run by volunteers. The garden and summer house shouldn't... More

The excursion was rather good, but the guide tended to underline that it is a Belgian chateau. She made a lot of disapproving remarks about the French in their history that were not pleasant at all especially for our colleague from France. The chateau is small and there is nothing special in there, but the surrounding park would be nice... More

Lovely old chateau that brings back an interesting in French/Belgian history. Though only a few of the rooms are open for viewing, there are treasures to been seen. The gardens are very formal so don't expect flowers. Nice drive to the Chateau along the river from our lodging in Dinant.

Nice tour with information fully available in English. The chateau gives a good view of life for a family of the lower nobility in an incredibly scenic spot on the Meuse. Well preserved, nicely presented, with a fair admission price. Commentaries were more insightful than those in most historic houses.

I read all nice reviews & we decided to visit once in Dinant. The palace is big but not all rooms are open but definetely enough for a visit. There are some explanations also in English in each room but when I asked about the audioguide there was none. There also was no guided tour as I read some other... More

The premises of the chateau are beautiful; it is sorrounded by mountains and the river. The interior is gorgeous as well. The only problem is to visit the Chateau if you do not own a vehicle. We took the 154A from going back and for from the train station. I would suggest to limit the visit to one hour because... More

Freyr castle was erected by William of Beaufort from 1571 onward on the site of an older fortification. The edifice was significantly expanded between 1604 and 1637 and modified in the second half of the eighteenth century. Visitors are warmly welcomed by a multilingual staff. About twenty rooms can be admired with the help of information leaflets. The tour tells... More

Everyone here was so nice- we had a warm reception and every question we had was answered. We even were given some great historical facts not part of the tour. The castle was worth coming to if you are visiting Dinant. Just a warning though- if you don't have a car and are taking a bus-- look at the bus... More
