THE GRAVENHOF CASTLE

The Gravenhof castle was built by the Baron Le Roy in 1649 and is located in the flemish part of Belgium, very close to Brussels. Formerly the castle was surrounded on all sides by water and access was via a drawbridge. In the 19th century the four corner towers were added to the castle. Today the castle is a hotel and restaurant, quite famous for wedding receptions, anniversaries or birthday parties. It is located in a beautiful parc Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket the front of the castle Photobucket a little river all around Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket the backside Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket and also some beautiful sculptures, unfortunately I don't know who did them. Although it was very cold a walk through this beautiful parc was worthwhile. It must be the ideal background for wedding pictures.

About Me

My photo
I love painting, writing, travelling and photography. My favorit models are my four cats which I observe with fun and humor. I am German, married to an Italian and we live in Waterloo (15 km from Brussels) / Belgium since many years. Waterloo is a famous place to many tourists, because Napoleon lost his battle here against Wellington and other European countries.
