Château de Grandchamp (Belgium)

Abandoned ruinous castle with a rather sad history. The roots of the Grandchamp nobility in the region date back to the 15th century. Legend has it that the lord of Grandchamp was captured during the revolution and died a horrible guillotine-death while the castle was under construction. Nowadays the château of Grandchamp is nothing less than a ruin. The roof of one of the wings has collapsed, every window has been bricked and nature is slowly reclaiming the castle.

Château Grammaire (Belgium)

The villa was built in the north of Belgium in the 1920s by a rich family of industrials. When several decades later their textile group went bankrupt, the family was forced to sell its château. Today, the abandoned villa is at risk of being torn down to make space for a retail store.

Château de Br (Belgium)

Built in a neoclassical style around 1750, this castle was once the crown piece of its region. The Belgian royal couple, King Albert I and Queen Elisabeth even paid the château and its marvellous green environment a visit once. Unfortunately a relentless fire destroyed much of the castle’s grandeur. A temporary alloy roof was put in place to halt further decay as renovations are planned that will soon reconvert the castle back to its original, elegant condition.

Château RedM (Belgium)

The origin of this château dates back to the 17th century. A few decades ago it was reconverted into a hotel. Poor management however led to the demise of the luxurious establishment. Nowadays the castle stands abandoned amidst its green surroundings. Inside, not a piece of furniture has been removed – the style, a truly eclectic mix of modern kitsch and classic ornamental craftsmanship, is very characteristic of the hotel business.
