The Château de Jehay is an imposing 16thcentury building surrounded by a moat and classified as Wallonia’s Outstanding Heritage. Its checkerboard structure, unique in Europe, makes it instantly recognizable. Although its interior is not accessible due to ongoing restoration work, the estate remains open to the public and offers various animations.
Owned by the Province of Liège, the castle has been modified over time by the various families who have owned it. The estate’s outbuildings, once stables, cowsheds and a barn, now house the boutique/ticket office and staff offices.
The outbuildings also present exhibitions showcasing the château’s art collection. Among the exhibitions on offer are “Le Cabinet de curiosités de Jehay”, “Oiseaux (extra)ordinaires” and
“Peintures étonnantes!”. These exhibitions allow visitors to discover different aspects of this vast and remarkable art collection.
