Castle of Lavaux-Sainte-Anne

Belgium, Rochefort Guide (B): Castle of Lavaux-Sainte-Anne

After Suzanna and I had enjoyed our 12 km morning walk around the area, we visited the Castle of Lavaux-Sainte-Anne. It’s listed as one of Wallonia’s exceptional heritage sites. Not surprisingly, it’s a popular tourist destination, and a much sought after location for society weddings. It’s certainly a beautiful and well-maintained castle with an attractive courtyard garden. 

The castle is fully open to the public, with 32 furnished and decorated rooms to discover. It is separated into three museums.

The first is the Museum of the Life of the Lords of Lavaux in the 17th century, showing how they lived, what they wore, what they eat and drank, where they slept etc. The second area is in the cellars. Here, the Museum of Rural Life presents everyday objects, customs and rural festivals of the late 19th century.
