Inclining towards the Rhineland, Raeren was one of the most important European centres of pottery in the 14th and 15th centuries. The border village with Germany made a living from this art. Pottery from Raeren is still found throughout the world…

Visitors enter the 14th century castle, surrounded by water, via a gate preceded by a stone bridge spanning the moats. Inside, more than 2,000 objects are on display, representing the expertise of Raeren’s potters. This unique collection, presented as a multi-sensorial exhibition, covers 500 years of Rhenish and contemporary ceramics.
