We have acquired a wonderful new gardener who has really spruced up the domain's gardens. The renovated greenhouse, which produces fresh herbs and vegetables for the castle's inhabitants, is now also open to visitors.
A real ecological touch and a home to many insects and butterflies.
Two beautiful white swans have adopted the castle's pond as their new home. We also have a 8 month old sheperd pup as our new guard dog.
The terrace behind the castle is now host to a wonderful work of art by renowned Belgian artist Jean-Michel Folon: “L’Homme au Chapeau” (The man with the hat).
Visitors are always welcome for gardens all year round at Ooidonk Castle from 09:30 until 18:00.
Only closed on Monday, and Tuesday morning.
