Water Castle De Borrekens in Belgium

De Borrekens is a moated castle located in the municipality of Vorselaar in Belgium. The castle was presumably built around 1270 by the Rotselaar family who were stewards of the Dukes of Brabant.

The castle underwent various big renovations and extensions. It's current neo-gothic appearance was given after the castle was rebuilt between 1850 and 1860. The outbuildings with stables were built in the 18th century.

De Borrekens Castle is not open for visitors, you can however walk through the forest surrounding the moat and have a look at it.

Location: use parking at the sport complex De Dreef in Oostakker street, Vorselaar. From here you can follow the walking path to the castle.
