The 18th century Castle of Seneffe is situated on a spectacular 22-hectare landscaped park, the highlight of which is the orangerie. The construction was supervised by Laurent Benoit Dewez, at the time official architect of the Austrian Netherlands. It narrowly escaped destruction during both the French Revolution and World War II, the latter time because it served as the residence for General Von Falkenhausen, the German military governor imposed upon Belgium. The Museum of Seneffe, housed within the Chateau, hosts an 80- piece collection of finely wrought silver and gold pieces. Open 10 am to 6pm - Tuesdays-Sundays.

Grandeur & Intimacy is the fantastic permanent exhibition set in the magnificent Seneffe castle. Thanks to the luxury silverware, the 18th century costumes and many other remarkable items on display inside the castle, the exhibition provides a fascinating opportunity for everyone to travel back to the times of the century of the Lumières. You will have access to the appartments, the private living rooms, the ladies wardrobes, the corridors. In addition to this an interactive film highlights the relationships as they were between the inhabitants of the Seneffe castle; tradition and gallantry, frivolity and influence, curiosity and secrets, austerity and indulgence.
