Alden Biesen Castle : Rijkhoven Belgium

At the small village of Rijkhoven in the eastern Belgium region of Limburg bordering with the Dutch Limburg and the city of Maastricht is a 16th century castle – Alden Biesen. It’s not the grandest or the most beautiful castle in the area, but if you’re in the area, or looking for a day trip from Maastricht, Tongeren, Hasselt, or Liege, then this castle is a nice detour for about an hour. There’s a church, a park, some gardens, and various visiting exhibitions. Every once in a while they also host some events.

 

Here’s what to expect if you’re thinking of visiting…

We combined this with a quick tour of Tongeren’s old center, and two attractions in Hasselt – the Japanese gardens (lovely but rather small) and the culture-nature park (soso, only if you’re really bored).
