Located in the province of Liège, the Château de Jehay's remarkable architecture is unique in Europe.
The Château de Jehay is an imposing 16th-century building surrounded by moats which appears as if by magic when you turn a corner in the wood.
Recognisable thanks to its famous chequered walls, it's a rare and beautiful example of 16th-century Renaissance style in the Meuse valley, listed as a site of exceptional heritage in Wallonia.
Your visit to the castleIt's worth a visit just to experience the special and refined atmosphere of the Château de Jehay. If you're an art lover, you'll be bowled over by its eclectic collections: furniture, silverware, paintings, tapestries, ceramics and books.
