The Three Castle Walk Route explores the domains of Tillegem, Tudor, Beisbroek and Chartreuzinnenbos. Walking paths and castle drives through extensive forests, heathland, grasslands and standard orchards allow you to discover the varied forest landscape south of Bruges. On the way, the castles of Tillegem, Tudor and Beisbroek bear witness to the rich living environment of the Bruges elite over the centuries. The route also takes you to historic courtyards such as ‘Hoeve Aandekooi’, ‘Hoeve Pereboom’ and ‘Hoeve Hermitage’.
