Legend has it that the ill-famed Dr Faust once lived in Waadenburg Castle which dates back to the 13th century. Hence it has a reputation for being haunted.

True or false, what can’t be denied is the pastoral beauty of Waadenburg Estate which surrounds the castle. Both times we visited were in Spring and it took my breath away. From the flowing streams and the green fields to the quietude that hangs over the place. Wonderful for a short stroll. We even saw a stork nesting on a tree stump!
