Kasteel van Loppem (Castle)

This 19th century castle, situated in the middle of a stunning English landscape garden and containing an authentic maze, has played a prominent role in Belgian history. In October 1918, during the final liberation offensive of the First World War, King Albert I moved his headquarters to Loppem. A month later, the so called ‘Government of Loppem’ – the very first three-party alliance in Belgium – was formed here. Both the architecture and the original design of the castle are exceptionally well preserved and the art collection is very impressive. Particularly noteworthy are the wall paintings with captions by the poet Guido Gezelle.
