There aren't many castles that you can actually go in and have free reign of. This was a pretty amazing experience. The host was very knowledgeable and friendly, and clearly cared about the castle and its history. But note, the steps are steep and narrow, you'll definitely be sore after climbing all of them!

the castle it's not well preserved, and there're no rooms or furniture, just the walls and the towers. the price ticket of 3€ it's ok for what you get, you can wonder around the castle freely and climb the three towers. unfurtunately the towers tops are extremly dirty from pidgeons excrements, which is quite disguting. keep in mind that that...

Been here now several times and always love to come back. It's not the best restored castle but still very very nice to see and pretty pictures to be taken in abundance. You get a feel for defences, for life in a castle although it's is completely empty (except for one torture device in one of the cellars, try to... More

This castle is in good shape and definitely worth a visit if you are in the neighbourhood. It is surrounded by a moat/pond and one can walk around it. It is possible to go inside up to the highest level. Beware your step because some staircases are narrow and steep. Also, on the higher levels there are quite a lot... More

I found it exciting to see a castle dating from the 1300s (and before). Kasteel van Beersel has been restored throughout the centuries, but we still felt like we were stepping far back in time. Most of the castle open to the public, including the 3 towers. My two boys enjoyed climbing the spiral staircases in the towers, looking through... More

We liked this stop. Some of the castle has been restored but a lot of it isn't so you get to see "before and after". It is amazing to walk to stairs the same as those of old did and imagine a time when it was filled with men. There was a self guided tour in English which gave us... More

We spent a morning visiting the castle. It's nothing special but I'm happy I've been there The Castle area is 80% open to public and with 3 Euro you can go wherever you want.

We love to seek out castles, so this was a fun outing for us. But, it's a drive by viewing, getting out to take a few pictures, then moving on. This is a nice castle with a moat and interesting flat sided towers. It was constructed around 1300. That alone makes it interesting. It was closed when we were there... More

Most of Castle Beersel is ruins, but there are some interior spaces that are still roofed and you can go in and climb up the towers and in places walk from tower to tower. It was neat to see a castle where the moat is still water-filled. This is a small attraction, but well worth a stop by and a... More
