Overview

One of the most impressive remains of feudalism in Europe and the oldest feudal vestige in Belgium. Its origins go back to the 8th century. It is a key account for the medieval architecture and is famous for the 1st crusade, lead by Godfrey of Bouillon. The Castle was used for military purposes until 1830. From the top of the main tower, you can admire a wonderful view on the Semois river and its meanders. Included in the visit : falconry show and permanent didactic exhibition. Also included : permanent exhibition "Scriptura", the history of writing from the Middel Ages until the XXst century.

We visited the Chateau of Bouillon and were very impressed by it. The Audio guide was worth hiring and the history of the whole site was enlightening. However, when we reached one of the roof tops, we were not impressed at all by the birds...More

It cost 7 euros for an adult for entrance into the castle. Apart from the amazing views and a falcon display, which we didn't stay to watch there wasn't really much else to see, apart for a load of confusing arrows pointing you upstairs and...More

Reasonably price visit to step back in time! Brilliant example of a castle from 100s of years use. You could definitely imagine all the soldiers guarding and the captive prisoners. The falconry display was an added bonus. Set in beautiful location with fantastic views. Excellent...More

A fabulous castle. Extremely interesting. Topped of by an educational bird of prey demonstration. Excellent views from the battlements. Lovely beer in the cafe near the car park.

Beautiful castle located in a beautiful area. And at the same time a fantastic medieval castle. Went there on a rainy day and there weren't that many other people. Spend two hours walking around the castle - at least. And still it is possible that...More

Our family of four (children ages 10 and 12) absolutely loved our experience at Chateau Boullion. We chose to do a self-directed tour with a guide book (best 1.50 EUR we could have spent!) which was perfect. We went at our own pace and learned...More

Nice big old castle on the hill with easy access yet not many artifacts in the castle to see. Views of the town from above is great and be prepared for lots of steps to climb. Still worth the visit and not to expensive.

The chateau itself is nice, as is the show with birds of prey, highly recommended. But the displays are dated, the puppets very unlifelike and many descriptions are in French only. Could do with a major update, it attracts enough people.

Yes, it is worth the stop. Quaint little village. and you can walk around parts of the castle on the outside. The town looks like a postcard. We were also just looking for a place to stop and I was glad we stopped.
