Online Ticketing

Purchase your tickets at home and gain time!

Prefer not to wait in line at the ticket booth? Want to be sure you can discover our castle when you want to? Then book your tickets online in advance and enjoy your visit to the fullest.

Self-guided visit

If you want to explore the castle by yourself or in a group with the audio guide of Wouter Deprez, then select 'self-guided visit’.

We also ask schools to always reserve online, even for a self guided visit. We will then include your group visit in our calendar so that everyone can enjoy a pleasant stay. Tip: you can register your school to facilitate your next booking.

Ghentians can visit the Castle of the Counts for free on Sunday mornings until 1 pm. It is recommended for Ghentians to book their visit online, as it gets especially crowded on Sunday mornings.


Group visit with guide

If you are part of a group and would like to explore the caste with a personal guide, then select 'group visit’.

Note: book your guide 21 days in advance. 
If you are a supervisor of a group of at least 15 people, you will receive free admission. On the spot, go to the box office for your free ticket.


Birthday parties

Reserve your birthday party here. Attention, keep in mind that you have to reserve at least three weeks in advance.
