We will gladly receive lovebirds at Castle Wynendale, which is a very romantic and photogenic location for wedding pictures.


There are “perfect shot” spots for  first communion pictures as well as spring celebration pictures.


Because Wynendale Castle is a private domain, photo shoots can only be made by submitting a request to the Torhout Tourism Service which in turn passes the request on to the castle owner.


Wynendale Castle is a prime location for birthday parties and for this purpose works closely with neighbouring catering services. The Torhout Tourism Service offers different catering arrangements depending on your budget and available time. More information can be obtained from the Torhout Tourism Service.


The picturesque castle barn and accompanying courtyard are available for free to Torhout social and cultural associations. The User Regulations are available at the Torhout Tourism Service.  You can request the regulations from the Torhout Tourism Service which in turn will pass the request on to the castle owner.
