Ooidonk Castle
Photo By Thienthu Vu

  • Title: Ooidonk Castle
  • State/Province/Region: Indiana
  • Country: Belgium
  • Nearest Area: Bruxell
  • Nearest Town: Gent
  • Brief Directions: In 1870 a large restoration started by the French architect Parent. He adapted the castle to the living standards of his period. The exterior was left mostly intact, apart from a couple of pseudo-renaissance style adaptions. The interior was completely remodeled so that nowadays we can see how a large, 19th century, mansion looked like.
  • Notes: Ooidonk Castle lies east of the village of Bachte-Maria-Leerne, a few kilometers south west of Gent. The castle's name is a derivation of the word 'hodonk' which means a higher piece of land in a swamp.
  • Best Season: Summer
  • Description: The briged to Ooidonk castle reflex in the calm water .

    Thanks Paul and Lorenzo! This is one of those scenes that a camera will never do justice to-there was nothing like being there.
