LONG AGO IT WAS A FORTRESS BUT TODAY IT IS A SITE FOR LEISURE AND DISCOVERIES! THE HOHLANDSBOURG CASTLE INVITES YOU TO EXPLORE A HISTORY-FILLED SITE THROUGHOUT NUMEROUS ACTIVITIES. 

 

2017 THEME: JOURNEYS BEYOND THE SEAS
Not all peoples are sailors. And yet, it was the sea that founded Western civilisation.
The daring Vikings who came from the North in the 8th century onwards, the wily merchants returning from the Orient in the 13th century, and the corsairs and pirates in the 17th century opened up the oceans to world trade ... On the great maritime routes, between naval combats and attacks, explore in 2017 the life of these men who were thirsty for adventure.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Why not surpise your loved ones by offering them an original gift for a

medieval banquet or a concert-cocktail!
