Accessibility

Gaasbeek Castle is a protected monument. We attach great importance to full accessibility and make an effort to make the castle as accessible as possible to the widest possible audience. Still, given the historic nature of the building, there are some limitations. For any questions regarding accessibility, please contact the audience-building department on: +32 (0)2 531 01 40 or at kasteelvangaasbeek@vlaanderen.be.

After the closure period, we are rebuilding our inclusive operation; this takes a little time. We therefore ask for your understanding if we are not yet meeting your needs. Tips, wishes or ideas are always welcome. That way, we can together ensure that everyone can experience the castle as a place of wonder.
