Arenberg Castle earlier
The lords of Heverlee built a first castle here in the 14th century. From the beginning of the 16th century the current castle was built in renaissance-style. It was extensively renovated in neo-gothic style in the 19th century. In 1916 the duke of Arenberg donated the domain to the university.
Arenberg Castle today
The castle is now used by the Engineering Science faculty of the KU Leuven and is the focal point of a green campus for the group Sciences & Technology
- The castle is open to students during the academic year, but unfortunately not accessible to visitors
