Wetland

The Wetland that has been established close to the castle has never existed as such. Instead, this area has been developed to show, in a relatively small space, some of the essential aspects of the Famenne wetlands, as they were are the end of the 19th and early 20th centuries.

1/ The marsh
The marsh provide a favourite habitat for amphibians such as frogs and toads and a host of insects. Among the many beautiful plant species are reeds, bulrushes and willows.

2/ The pond
Winter home and stopover site for migrant birds, the pond also provides a habitat for pike and roach, as well as bursting with a variety of plant life.

3/ The Meadows
A variety of hedgerows separate the meadows where animals graze frome those that are still scythed by hand.
