Walzin Castle was constructed in the 13th century, but the castle was burned down by the French army in 1554. A Renaissance horseshoe tower with four cannon ports was added in the 15th century, and that tower still exists today. There were several restorations later, the latest by Baron Frederic Brugman between 1930 and 1932. Victor Hugo made a drawing of the castle in 1863.

Reviews and impressions

I love castles and cannot imagine how beautiful the location is for Walzin Castle. I would love to see it someday.

I've seen many castles in France and Germany, and this castle is on par with them. Castles are absolutely fascinating and even more so from the inside.

Why does the cliff's edge Waltzing castle stands on in Belgium not erode and make the castle fall down. All rock erodes with time and Waltzing Castle is now on the very edge. I am surprised that this was not addressed in any of the descriptions anywhere about this castle.

Beautiful castle.

It's very Stable, and Sleek
