This castle has his roots in the12th century. In july 1680 the castle was struck by lightning. No less than 30.000 kg of gunpowder and a large stock of granades and explosives were in the tower. The explosion destroyed the castle. In 1986 it was decided to rebuilt the foundations of the castle.
This is the Demerrondeel that was rebuilt in 1950. The foundations date from 1300, when the Demer formed the town's moat.
