Originating from the Middle Ages and a direct translation to "castle of counts," you have to take a wander around this fairytale-esque castle, located on the water.

The castle is full of artefacts and small exhibitions to give you an idea of what life was like back in the middle ages. In Winter, Gravensteen puts on a WinterWonder themed tour which perfect is for the whole family.
