Belgium Bisschoppenhof Castle

  • Please log in or sign up for free to see the GPS coordinates & weather for this photo spot
The prince-bishop of Li├Ęge possessed certain rights with the castle Bisschoppenhof and an episcopal villa, which came into possession of the duke of Brabant after the Battle of Woeringen (1288). It became a fief of the duke and as such came into the possession of various families.

The gatehouse dates from the first half of the 16th century, while the main building dates from the second quarter of the 17th century. At the beginning of the 19th century, a wing was added and at the beginning of the 20th century, the building was further expanded.

In 1956, Bisschoppenhof Castle was sold to a building company, which in 1958 transferred the castle with its garden, moat and adjacent park to the municipality of Deurne. From then on, the surrounding grounds were parceled out and built over. The castle was retained.
