Visit the Castle "Eenens" – House of the Arts

This patrician house, one of the rare remains from Schaerbeek's past, was built in 1826 by patrician Charles-Louis Eenens, on a location called "Op den Zavel". In 1950 the building was bought by the municipality of Schaerbeek, which transformed it into the "House of the Arts", a cultural centre which can be used for all kinds of artistic activities and exhibitions. The building contains several important items, such as the Louis XV and Louis XVI lounges, and the dining hall of which the mantelpiece is set with old Delft manganese tiles. It is also where the cup is kept that Prince Frederik van Oranje drank tea from in 1830 during his stop in this residence, during the withdrawal of the Dutch troops.

Only possible from Monday to Friday, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. final entrance.
