A superb moated castle in the Torhout woods. Hours of walking pleasure guaranteed. There is more: at the castle museum the visitor makes a voyage through a thousand-year-old history by means of contemporary presentations and multimedia displays. You can see how Mary of Burgundy fell fatally from her horse nearby and watch how King Leopold III of the Belgians surrenders to the Germans on 28 May 1940. Children can undertake a magical fairy-tale quest. And why don’t you drop in on the former porter’s lodge? It now houses a visitor’s centre where you can find everything you always wanted to know about Torhout, the Bruges wet- and woodlands, regional products, rambles, bicycle tours and so on and so forth.
