Castle of Jehay

Chateau de Jehay

Search Huy

The chateau of Jehay has an unusual appearance -- the facade is a checkerboard of brown and white stones -- and an unusual history. It has been owned by the van Steen family since the 17th century; the present occupant, Count Guy van Steen, rehabilitated the building in the wake of its use as a home for the children of Belgian railway workers during WWII. Count Guy is an archaeologist and a sculptor of some renown. Many of his works are on display at the Chateau. Historic traces of earlier habitation have been uncovered and preserved on the Jehay grounds, including ruins from the Roman period and from a civilization that existed 10,000 years ago.
