Belgium Hof van Liere Castle

  • Please log in or sign up for free to see the GPS coordinates & weather for this photo spot
The Hof van Liere castle was built by the family van Lyere in 1465 as a feudal castle. The bailiffs of Santhoven and various noble families left their mark on the castle.

In the course of time, when the old ramparts proved to be less useful, they were demolished. Thus, the actual residential buildings became available and the once fortified place lost its grim appearance of medieval fortification.

In the first quarter of the 19th century, the castle was rebuilt and restored by Jacobus Meyers, lord of Zwijndrecht, Zandhoven and Vichte. In 1803 he had major renovation work carried out that formed the basis of the current castle.

In 1993 the castle was protected as a monument.
