Castle ‘the Commandery’ at Sint-Pieters-Voeren (Belgium) by Mark Billiau.

Castle ‘the Commandery’ at Sint-Pieters-Voeren (Belgium)

This castle was built in Mosan Renaissance style at the beginning of the 17th century by the Knights of the Teutonic Order (°)
Restoration works took place in 1910.

There is a great nursery of trout and sturgeon at the Commandery. This is the oldest fish farming in Belgium in operation since 1885.

(°) : The Teutonic Order was a christian society of knights, founded in the Middle Ages for the crusades and to propagate or to defend the catholic faith, often with lots of violence.
In Belgium, the Teutonic Order was abolished in 1798 but still exists nowadays in Central Europe as a purely religious catholic order.
A big thanks to John Mc D for the kindly nomination of this picture.

The castle is beautiful with the ivy climbing up the walls and your picture shows it well. Bw, Viola

another of those beautiful belgian castles!! and captured so well, with the reflections in the murky waters and that special atmosphere – a little dark and brooding, as though we must brace ourselves for a thunderstorm later… but the faint light suits the brick facade so well! greetings, sabine.

Irbenika, 8.09.2011 at 11:12h

Amazing!! Great colors, reflections and view!

fotopeter45, 12.09.2011 at 12:22h

wat een schitterend kasteel mark
en ik ken het helemaal niet
zo dichtbij waar ik woon ( maastricht)
en ik ben er nog nooit geweest
daar komt nu snel verandering in.

je hebt er trouwens 'n prachtige foto van gemaaktheel erg uitnodigend om er heen te gaan.


Gaby Darsow, 13.09.2011 at 11:01h

Excellente Aufnahme des schönen Schlosses,wunderbar die Farben und Spiegelungen im Teich.

Vera Böhm, 19.09.2011 at 12:57h

Captured with great reflections in the water and in nice colours,
but something in the foreground would have been quite good.
Regards, Vera

susi schl., 19.09.2011 at 20:49h

Great to know where this beautiful castle can be found and what is its historic background.
And after knowing the facts, one can relish in a fairy tale setting:
the pond where the Frog King lives, the castle where Sleeping Beauty awaits her prince...
A great place to have a nice pick-nick and, of course, to take some wonderful photos.
Best regards,
