Urspelt/Ischpelt

Urspelt Castle

I had no intentions to make reviews of hotels. But a castle is a castle. And this is my greatest passion, as you already know. Who’s said, that Belgium is the country with the highest density of castles per square kilometer, when Château d’Urspelt is only 5 km away from Château de Clervaux. I know, I know – there is no such country as Belgium, where the castles arise one after another from the left and from the right when you drive down the interurban roads.

So, I didn’t mean to show you hotels, but imagine, you spend nights in a castle. Just like that. Even when you are not a ‘nobleman’. Wouldn’t you be carried away in spirit to another age. I think you would. And even when it doesn’t come to an ancient or medieval castle. Like Château d’Urspelt.

In fact, it was the Chapel of Saint-Antoine l’Ermite that has impressed me most in this settlement. And of course, it was closed. And of course, I couldn’t find any information on it anywhere.
