Readen Real Estate committed to invest a further 2 million USD to finish the development of the estate as well as the completion of the new wing of the hotel which will include an additional 20 rooms and a wellness centre.

Hidden in the woods and between the hills of the Belgian border region, Chateau Altembrouck is an oasis of natural peace, with a historic atmosphere and style associated with an 18th century castle. Just a few minutes away from Maastricht, Aachen and Liege, the castle is ideally located. From the gatehouse a long driveway winds past ponds with black swans to the castle which dates from 1314. Altembrouck, in the seventeenth century, was a beautiful resort, where the local nobles and royal families retreated to spend their summers. Altembrouck presently, is a truly multifunctional estate.
The innovative agricultural developments surrounding the castle are an inspiring background which makes the castle a unique location. The breading and sales of Waygu cattle adds an additional source of income for the resort. (See www.wagyu.net).
The castle area on the estate can be rented in its entirety on an exclusive basis for business purposes or receptions for all kinds of festive occasions, where privacy is guaranteed. Altembrouck offers an unparalleled setting for seminars, product presentations, receptions, weddings, dinners and private dining. Luminous spaces are available for small and larger groups.
A presentation in the spotlight of the large orangery, a symposium in historic rooms, a private party in our coach house, an underground reception in the vaulted cellars or an inspiring business lunch in the newly renovated Winter garden, A Wellness and leisure Area, Altembrouck makes it all possible.
If you stay overnight, you wake up in one of the 33 spacious guest rooms, there will be an additional 15 rooms available after the renovation to the Hotel.
