Egmont Palace

Hotels near Egmont Palace, Brussels, Belgium .

Egmont Palace in Brussels, Belgium is a large mansion at the Wolstraat/ Rue aux Laines and the Kleine Zavel/Petit Sablon. It houses the Belgian Ministry of Foreign Affairs today.

Built between 1548 and 1560 by Françoise of Luxembourg and her son, Lamoral, Count of Egmont, the castle was designed first in the Flemish Gothic style, and later in the Renaissance. It was redesigned in the neoclassical style by Giovanni Niccolò Servandoni in the 18th century. When the oldest part of the palace was damaged by fire in 1891, it was renovated into a uniform classical style.

After the first World War the owner, the German Arenberg family, sold the building to the city of Brussels, and was sold again in 1964 to the country of Belgium.

Today, the palace is used for receptions and meetings by the Belgian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
