In the heart of the beautiful provincial Sterrebos domain, one of the oldest Renaissance castles of the country can be found, thus providing the perfect location for the “Albert I and the Great War” exhibition. This audiovisual exhibition features rare pictures, videos and audio material highlighting the Belgian story during WWI, taking you on a journey through the fascinating life and reign of the famous Belgian king Albert I, illustrating that a ruler could be more than merely a national symbol. Throughout his life, Albert remained stubbornly faithful to his subjects and proved that he was also a master diplomat. At the end of February 2016, an additional segment will open, focusing on diplomacy during WWI, as a (world) war is not only decided on the battlefield. Matters such as diplomacy and economy played a big part in the evolutions of the decade. The occupied Brave Little Belgium stood its ground among the superpowers and even went on to claim an important role. Visitor groups can choose from a number of attractive all-in formulas. A guided visit can, for example, be followed by a brunch, dessert plate or a nocturne with a drink in the castle.
