It was being heavily refurbished when we visited so check before you go. It does look like an interesting authentic castle and there are nice views of the river.

River cruise ship docked within walking distance. Decided to go for a walk to visit the castle and found it under renovation and closed. Will eventually be a visitors center. Small castle used for defense purposes and not lived in by royalty.

Het Steen can be found on the east bank of the river and is a small but very attractive castle. It is not far to reach here from the main touristy streets of Antwerp so it's well worth stopping by and having a look inside.

The castle was under renovation during our visit so we were unable to see it, but what we could see looked lovely.

Completely fenced. It is under renovation. Could not actually see anything extensive. May be something to see when completed, but that will be quite some time.
