Chaussée de Bruxelles, 111, La Hulpe, B-1310
Château de La Hulpe, a vast castle in the styles of Louis XII and François I, was built by the Marquis of Béthune in around 1840. At the end of the 19th century, Ernest Solvay, a wealthy industrialist, acquired the property, which now belongs to Wallonia. Only the grounds, not the castle itself, are accessible to the public. Classified as an "Exceptional Heritage Site in Wallonia", the grounds consist of a pretty landscaped park with beds of rhododendrons and azaleas and the remarkable trees of the Soignes Forest making it an ideal place for gentle strolls and quiet relaxation.
