Near Leuven you can find Castle Van Horst. This medieval castle is located on a strategic spot in the Winge-valley. In 1488 it was burned down by the people of Leuven who rebelled against Maximilian of Austria. Iwein van Kortenbach rebuilt the castle to protect Leuven. The castle is empty now, nobody wants to live there anymore. You can visit it. There is a little shop and a restaurant in the former coach-house on the bailey. Enjoy the photos.
