The park of the Arenberg castle

The park of the Arenberg castle


When the Arenberg family acquired the chateau which bears their name in the early 17th century, the park became a huge leisure garden, with two main areas giving the park its structure :

The large rectangle, divided into five separate gardens with different themes, still has a magnificent Chinese pavilion (17th-18th centuries) with unique faux marble décor imitating lacquerware.

The elegant heptagonal Seven Stars pavilion, supported by seven pairs of Tuscan columns, is the starting-point for fourteen walks planted with different species of trees.

The park fell into neglect in the 19th and 20th centuries, but it is now undergoing major restoration work.
