same castle, getting closer and closer


Sippenaken is a quiet countryside village of just a couple of hundred inhabitants. It used to belong to the Duchy of Limburg, but these days it lies in the north of the province of Liège.

The castle of Beusdael is the most notable building in this part of the valley. The oldest part of the keep dates from the 14th century.


This picture shows the entrance to the castle of Beusdael. The keep on the left is the oldest part. Sadly, the castle is privately owned and not open for visitors.

Bonjour Benny,

J'aime beaucoup cet endroit qui semble avoir beaucoup de caractère.Ce château est vraiment très beau. Par contre je déplore un peu la coupure du sommet de la tour à gauche.
