An emblematic showcase of Brabant Wallon, Hélécine Castle and its 70-acre grounds offer a fitting illustration of the region's cultural, historic and touristic riches. The property of Brabant-Wallon since 1962, this exceptional site located midway between Brussels and Liège has crossed the ages, survived every battle and pushed back the ravages of time.
This ancient abbey was founded by the Premonstratensian Order. In 1768, architect Laurent-Benoît Dewez was appointed to design the new abbey buildings. The two-toned castle facade is owed to the use of red bricks and white Gobertange stone. This 18th-century, neo-classic castle features a monumental dome harbouring a circular nave leading onto four chapels.

Hélécine Castle grounds offer a delightful spot for families and friends alike, complete with a scenic footpath, crazy golf course, animal park, fishing lakes, a free 5000m² playground, bouncy castles and a dog-walking area.

"La Brasserie du Parc" pop-up bar with terrace facing the lakes is open on Wednesdays, weekends, bank holidays and during school holidays.

Also a seminar and holiday centre, the 18th-century castle offers numerous meeting rooms, staterooms and the sumptuous Dome Room for receptions.

Accessible to reduced-mobility guests.
