Bracht

Bracht Castle

Chased by a watchdog, accompanied by a Belgian whose every other sentence is “it is not allowed”, on a cold sunless day (which is something that you have to get to use to, because you know this famous ad at the Brussels airport – ‘Chocolate is best when it’s kept out of the sun. No surprise that the best is found in Belgium.’), but I’ve managed to take a photograph of the Castle of Bracht – the place of residence of the lords of Burg Reuland after they leaved the fortified castle of Burg Reuland at the end of the 18th century.

It is a simple looking bourgeois house from the end of the 18th century (1785).

The coat of arms of the family of Montigny – the last lords of Burg Reuland. And this is apparently the back side of the castle where I’ve landed, as I’ve found it out later.

The present, also very simple church dates from 1865.
