It is famous for two castles that have their origins in the feudal era. The Castle of Cortewalle dates back to the 15th century and the Castle Hof Ter Saksen was built in the 18th century. This was a medieval inn on the way between Antwerp and Ghent, which was abandoned and was in ruins all through the latter half of the 20th century. However, the past few years have witnessed extensive renovation work and hence, it is gaining back its past grandeur and you can relive its glorious past by booking cheap flights to Beveren.
Cortewalle Castle belonged to the families of Triest and Goubau. However, the last known owner was a family called de Brouchoven de Bergeyck from whom the municipality of Beveren acquired the property. Cortewalle Castle is a moated castle which was constructed in a distinctive Flemish Renaissance style and made of white sandstone. It is a treasure trove for historians since it has the invaluable De Bergeyck archives. The Cortewalle Castle is presently housed in the TerVesten cultural centre. It is surrounded by sprawling parkland stretching over 9 hectares, which is open to all. You could go on a guided tour of the magnificent castle by prior arrangement.
Another place of historic significance is the nearby Haasdonk fort that was constructed for the security and protection of Antwerp prior to World War I. It was a second order fort surrounded by a moat, 50m wide. You could also see a 17th century windmill located at Doel. Try to book those hotels in Beveren that offer a breathtaking view of the splendid landscape around, reminding you of southern Netherlands.
