Great Castles of Belgium

Belgium has more castles than you can imagine. Yep, over 3,000 of them – in a land of just over 30,000 square kilometers, with fewer than 11 million people! Which is to say, Belgium has more castles per square kilometer – or square mile – than any country in the world. And they come in every persuasion and architectural style, from the medieval and romantic manifestations to the formidable defensive fortifications. But since it's impractical to see them all, here are our top picks – the 10 best, most popular, most famous castles in Belgium.
