Domain of Pietersheim

Visit the Domain of Pietersheim in Lanaken, one of the 6 access gates of the National Park “Hoge Kempen” with 5700ha of unbroken nature. ‘Domain Pietersheim’ stands for an adventurous exploration and discovery of the present and the past.


The castle of the 12th century, awarded with the Belgium Monument’s award, bore witness of the turbulent battles of the Lords of Pietersheim.  A movie will show you the evolution of a medieval castle into a 16th century castle and the site as you can visit it today.  In the 16th century chapel, all legal, religious as well as military functions get their place in the spotlight. The visitor’s centre will provide all information about the scenery of the National Park.
