Feest in 't Kasteel - banner 2024

Festival in the Castle 2024

Once a year, the castle comes alive. You go back in time to the Castle of the Counts of the Middle Ages. Knights set up camp and, together with noble ladies, soothsayers, jesters... they provide a whole day brimming with activity in the castle. So brace yourself for a real medieval party for young and old and, of course, lots of songs and dancing!
