Discover the majestic home of the aristocratic d’Hane Steenhuyse family! Its colourful salons, fine furniture, sumptuous wall hangings and tantalizing murals whisk your back in time two hundred years. So don’t be surprised if you stumble upon a housemaid or coachman. And do take a stroll in the beautiful enclosed garden, an oasis of peace in the hectic Veldstraat.


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.
