The Castle of Lavaux-Sainte-Anne is listed as "Exceptional heritage of Wallonia". It is one of Wallonia's most famous buildings, as well as well-known symbol of the Famenne area.

While strolling through the Castle, you can sometimes hear echoes from the castle's eventful past…

A couple of the castle's highlights:

" The walk around the moat that will also take you alongside the deer park.

" Discover the inside of the fortress; you can visit it from top to bottom, from cellar to dungeon!

" The Museum of the Lords of Lavaux during the 17th century : see how they enjoyed life in their luxurious surroundings.

" The first floor hosts the Nature museum, and exhibits an impressive collection of stuffed animals that demonstrate the variety of the fauna in the Famenne.

" The museum in the castle cellars evokes rural life in the Famenne area through typical 19th century customs, everyday objects, and celebrations.

" Our wetland, a natural shelter for all kinds of animal species, is protected by the Walloon government as a natural area of "great biological interest". It is dotted with information panels packed with interesting facts.

" Children will be disguised as princesses or knights, to make the adventure even more exciting !

Really picturesque little castle! Very pretty garden leading up to a perfect little castle. Free parking out front of the chateau, €8 entry for adults which gets you into the chateau (including all 3 museums) and the wetlands on the other side of the car park. Castle was brilliant - favourite part was in the lower rooms which showed everyday... More

There aren't a lot of castles in such a good condition that can be visited from the cellar to the roof, with deers in the garden. Each floor is a different museum, the least interesting is the one about nature in the area, with lot of stuffed animals. On your way to or from Brussels, a pleasant detour.

We went here with 3 kids of different ages and they all loved it. They could dress up and explore the different floors of the castle. We saw beautiful rooms, old tools and appliances and a nice collection of stuffed animals of the local fauna.

Visited as part of a wedding in August 2015. Cute baby deers live there. We stayed at "Gite de luxe" located just outside the castle with a big company of friends, and it was great!

Beautifully restored and well organised with multiple language-cards in each room explaining the history. The kitchen area under the Castle is particularly fascinating and brilliantly fitted out with items of the period. Background sounds reminiscent of daily life in the 14th century add to the atmosphere. A wonderful mix of periods well presented. Highly recommended.

Practically there is only one museum in the premises. The setting and explanation give you an idea on how life was centuries ago. We downloaded a coupon for 1+1 to save on entrance fees.

It is a nice place to visit if you are close. This small castle is great to walk around, also with kids. It is not that big, but impressive from the outside. Every floor shows something different. It was a nice surprise to see it. The garden is also nice to visit.

The castle has a long history, it is really well renovated and there are 3 museums. In comparison with other Belgium castles I have visited, this one is smaller and not so attractive. They produce their own type of bier also, but I didn't like it ( this is my personal opinion). Nevertheless, should you like hunting or you are... More

Passing the catle dozens of times on the hiway I finally decided to visit it. I ve seen many castles all around Europe but this one was surprisingly nice. Why? The entrancefee is fair : € 8 and there s enough to see. There is not a real fixed step by step route, but you can discover the castle room... More
