Built on three rock pitons overlooking the Semois river, the Bouillon Castle is a remarkable monument in the province of Luxembourg, retracing almost a thousand years of history and military architecture.

With its stunning vaulted rooms, the Bouillon castle is considered one of the oldest and most impressive feudal buildings in Belgium.

Do not miss the falconry demonstrations, for a full medieval atmosphere.

The castle's history

This fortified building, which is said to date back to the VIIIth century, was made famous by Godefroid, leader of the first crusade (1096) and Advocate of the Holy Sepulchre. It was used as a military base until 1830 and was later reworked by Vauban, Louis XIV's famous architect, to be fitted with heavy artillery for the wars to come.

You can combine your visit with the nearby Archéoscope Godefroid de Bouillon and Ducal Museum.

The castle's cheese cellar

Here is age the œillet du château, an exceptional hard cheese made by The Bergerie d'Acremont, a sheephold with Belgian ewes and so much more and which recipe dates from the Middle Ages. Visitors can buy this delicacy at the Bergerie d'Acremont and in deli shops in Bouillon.
