Chateau Ommerstein or Ommerstein Castle (Dutch: Kasteel van Ommerstein) is a castle in the village of Rotem in the municipality of Dilsen-Stokkem, province of Limburg, Belgium. The history of the castle goes back to the 13th century, but most of the present Neo-classical building dates from the 18th century, although the donjon survives from earlier. Between 1999 and 2007 the property has undergone a severe restoration using the most exclusive and luxury materials and combining modern design with classic elegance and a flavour of art-deco.
The monumental steps in massive Belgian hard stone lead up to the main building which comprises a generous sized reception hall with cloak room leading through to a boardroom-office in French oak, a grand dining room with open fire with adjacent a fully equipped Obumex kitchen and the home cinema room with open fire again. In the hallway, the stairs or elevator rise up to the first floor boasting four substantial suites with walking wardrobes and ensuite bathrooms, and a utility area with washing and laundry facilities.
The underground cellar with original vaulted ceilings comprises a leisure complex with sauna, gym, rain shower and two hot tubs as well as an authentic wine cellar.
Furthermore, there’s a heated outdoor swimming pool and a outdoor shower in the garden accesible from the huge outdoor terrace as well as from the wellness-area.
The chateau is set in a unique historic park of 13,5 ha, designed by a renowned garden architect in 1810, and displays some of the oldest trees of Belgium as well as two natural streams and the typical castle moat.
