An amiable city in a pleasant region that is brimming with history. Turnhout is rightfully proud of its 14th-century Beguinage, which was designated a UNESCO world heritage site. Turnhout Castle, known locally as the Castle of the Dukes of Brabant, is even older. Besides all this history, you can also enjoy Turnhout’s shopping opportunities, splendid city park and delightfully unaffected atmosphere. Welcome!
