You’ll find the door open on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays between 14 and 18.00 hrs. The house is suffused with the spirit of the ancien régime. You hear the sounds of dance music and approaching carriages. Here and there historical film clips elucidate the complicated rules of conduct and etiquette of that period. You soon lose all sense of time and imagine you are a guest of the Count and Countess d’Hane Steenhuyse.
Those interested in more background information would do well to join the guided tour which takes place every Friday and Saturday at 14.30 hrs. Everyone loves a good story and when it comes to the history of the house, the guide holds nothing back. Find out what went on behind the doors of the boudoirs, cabinets and enfilades. This guided tour includes a visit to the Chinese Salon and the study of Nobel prizewinner Maurice Maeterlinck in Arnold Vander Haeghen House, opposite Hotel d’Hane Steenhuyse.
