Te Couwelaar Castle is a remnant of a 16th- to 17th-century moated castle.
In 1606, it belonged to cloth merchant Gillis Du Mont, alias Brialmont, who had also owned the neighbouring Bisschoppenhof castle since 1595. The Du Monts had the castle considerably improved. In 1735, after various changes of ownership, it came into the hands of Pedro de Man, former Antwerp alderman, who had major alterations made in 1766.

Te Couwelaar Castle was bought by the municipality of Deurne in 1927 and occupied by administrative services, warehouses and workshops until 1970.

Currently, five families live in the castle.

In 1998, the castle was protected as a monument.
