The Grand Commandery Alden Biesen An Eventful History

Built by the Teutonic Knights in the 13th century, the Grand Commandery in Alden Biesen was the seat of the knight’s regional governor for centuries. The castle flourished from the 16th to 18th centuries, when the current castle was erected. This prosperity was ended by the French Revolution, and the estate fell into disrepair, until it became a property of the Flemish community in the 20th century. Today, the castle complex is one of the largest left in the region, and serves as a cultural centre where a variety of events are held throughout the year, ranging from art exhibitions to plays, the famous Fleuramour flower festival, and even an International Storytelling Festival. Even when there aren’t events, visitors can enjoy a stroll through the castle’s manicured French gardens, or step inside to learn about the castle’s history in the museum.
