The park of Enghien castle
Created by the d'Arenberg family, the park of Enghien castle was considered one of the most beautiful European gardens in the 17th century! This "green theatre", now included among the exceptional gardens of Wallonia, consists of theme gardens, ponds and old buildings listed in Wallonia's major heritage register. Be sure to visit the Pavillon des Sept Etoiles: this old gazebo in baroque style still offers "one of the most beautiful views in the world" !
A visit to the park starts with a multimedia show, after which you can choose one of the two audio-guided trails (one for adults and one for children). Several events are organised in the park each year, allowing you to enjoy the place in a sociable atmosphere.
