Kasteel Waardenburg

Kasteel Waardenburg

This castle dates back to the 13th century and was built by order of the knight Rudolph de Cock. Over the centuries the castle has had different inhabitants. According to legend, Doctor Faust also lived here for a while and was thrown out of the castle tower window by the devil. The castle was largely destroyed in 1574. The ruin of the castle was made habitable again in 1627 and later the castle was completely restored. The square tower at the current castle actually dates from the 14th century and the moat even dates from the 13th century. Unfortunately, the castle is not open to visitors, except for special days such as Heritage Days.
