Belgium Weyninckhove Castle

  • Please log in or sign up for free to see the GPS coordinates & weather for this photo spot
Weyninckhoven Castle was first mentioned in 1265. Knight Goswin Bok sold the property to the German Order of Pitzenburg, which looked after knights on a crusade to the Holy Land.

Presumably, the property was destroyed by the State troops in 1583-1584 and rebuilt in stone around 1598.

On 27 September 1793, the castle grounds were sold to Helena Geelhand. The castle then acquired its present appearance. It remained in the possession of this family until it was sold to the municipality in 1951.

During the Second World War, the estate was occupied by the army. After the war, it briefly served as a home for weak children.

In 1951, the building was adapted as the town hall.

In 1981, the castle was protected as a monument, and together with its surroundings as a village sight.
