Disneyland Hotel in Paris

The Disneyland Hotel in Paris is a 5-star luxury hotel located right at the entrance to Disneyland Park. This beautiful Victorian-inspired hotel offers fairy tale themed rooms, a heated indoor pool, garden and terrace. At certain times you can also meet Disney characters here.

A huge benefit of the Disneyland Hotel is that the entrance and ticket booths are under the building. Because of this you can have a great advantage when using the extra magic time. This means you can enjoy attractions before the official opening times when not many people are in the park yet. A disadvantage is that the Disneyland Hotel is the most expensive option of all hotels in Disneyland.

The Maiden's Tower in Zichem

The Maiden's Tower (Maagdentoren) in Zichem was built at the end of the 14th century by Reinier II van Schoonvorst. Until now it's unclear what the exact function of the tower was. It could have been a defense tower or a residential tower.

The tower was given many names over the centuries. Marientoren is mentioned in the oldest written source, but also Markentoren and Lanteerntoren. Maiden's Tower is most often used. According to many, this name hides the tragic story of the lord's daughter, who was locked up in the tower by her father because she refused to marry the man he had chosen for her.

The Maiden's Tower became a protected monument in 1962. In 2006, a part of the wall collapsed and the tower was left in very poor condition. After major renovations the Maiden's Tower was openend again in 2015. On the top is now a viewing deck which offers a panoramic view of the area.

Location: Steenweg Diest, 3271 Scherpenheuvel-Zichem, Belgium.

The Spectacular Castle of Pierrefonds

Pierrefonds Castle dates back to the 15th century, but was taken down and left in ruins in the 17th century. Under the direction of Napoleon III, the castle was completely restored by the architect Viollet-le-Duc in the 19th century. His interpretation of the style of the Middle Ages and the Renaissance period resulted in this imposing castle.

Château Pierrefonds houses a permanent exhibition on the restoration by Viollet-le-Duc and an exhibition of the Monduit art collection, a lead casting firm. In the cellars of the castle, almost hundred statues, mostly praying, are preserved. In a strange and mysterious atmosphere created by sound and light are these plaster giants commissioned by Louis-Philippe for the Museum of the Palace of Versailles. Among the figures are characters who have marked the history of Pierrefonds.

Location: Rue Viollet le Duc, 60350 Pierrefonds, France.
