Mission

Gaasbeek Castle is a unique historic house with a rich history and an exceptional collection. The castle is at the heart of an expansive, green heritage site with exceptional architectural witnesses from various style periods. We take care of this historic ensemble in a sustainable way: respectful, but not constrained.

We tell and act out stories to inspire people today. We believe that heritage is not synonymous with standing still or freezing, but implicitly invites reflection, deepening and self-inquiry. We are expanding the castle into a heritage laboratory and develop systematic initiatives that connect the present and the past in a relevant and fanciful way.
